Latest Genome Stories
A carnivorous plant known as the humped blatterwort has a genetic makeup that sounds like something out of a science-fiction novel – it has a smaller genome than many well-known types of plants, but has a greater number of genes, a team of researchers has discovered.

An international group of scientists has completed the first ever genome sequence of a blind myriapod, Strigamia maritima.
The northern greater galago (Otolemur garnettii), also called Garnett's greater galago, is native to Africa. This species is important to genetic research because of the low genomic sequence, completed in 2006, that makes it possible to bridge the genome sequence of higher primates like chimps, and non-primate species like rodents. However, the small 2x genome is not large enough to be a complete genome. The northern greater galago has been given a conservation status of “Least Concern”...
Coccolithovirus, a giant double-stranded DNA virus, infects Emiliania huxleyi, a species of coccolithophore. The virus was first observed in 1999 by W.H. Wilson and his team at the Marine Biological Association. It was sequenced for the EhV-86 strain during the summer of 2005, and was found to be a "giant-virus" having 472 protein-coding genes. It is the largest known marine virus by genome.
