Researchers Map Genome Of Two Important Spruce Tree Species
2013-05-23 07:52:22

The genomes of two of the most economically important forest trees in the world were released by Canadian and Swedish scientists. Between them, the white spruce and the Norway spruce genomes have 20-30 billion base-pairs and are up to 10 times larger than the human genome, making these sequence assemblies the largest to date.

Genomic Survey Of Fungal Diversity On Human Skin

A new study led by researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in the UK has, for the first time, used genome sequencing technology to track the changes in a bacterial population following the introduction of a vaccine.

Genome Study Of Two Turtle Species Sheds Light On Evolution Of Shell
2013-04-29 11:29:05

A Nature Genetics report on the newly sequenced genomes of the soft-shell turtle and green sea turtle shows that the iconic reptiles have a common ancestor with crocodilians and birds – diverging from these groups between 270 and 240 million years ago.

Scientists Hope To Improve Genome-wide Association Studies With Two New Methods
2013-04-26 11:25:54

As scientists probe and parse the genetic bases of what makes a human a human (or one human different from another), and vigorously push for greater use of whole genome sequencing, they find themselves increasingly threatened by the unthinkable: Too much data to make full sense of.
