Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncologicas (CNIO) Over 99% of human protein coding genes have an origin that predates primates by over 50 million years. The study questions the genomic annotations of many different species How nutrients are metabolized and how neurons communicate in the brain are just some of the messages coded by the 3 billion letters that make up the human genome. The detection and characterization of the genes present in this mass of information is a complex...

Loblolly Pine's Huge Genome Sequenced
2014-03-20 11:02:54

Genetics Society of America The massive genome of the loblolly pine—around seven times bigger than the human genome—is the largest genome sequenced to date and the most complete conifer genome sequence ever published. This achievement marks the first big test of a new analysis method that can speed up genome assembly by compressing the raw sequence data 100-fold. The draft genome is described in the March 2014 issue of GENETICS and the journal Genome Biology. Loblolly pine is the...
