  • Extensive variation revealed in 1001 genomes and epigenomes of Arabidopsis

    An international team of scientists has sequenced the whole genomes and epigenomes of more than 1,000 Arabidopsis thaliana plants, sampled from geographically diverse locations. The collection of 1,001 genomes and 1,001 epigenomes not only illuminates new aspects of its evolutionary history, but als more

  • Ultrashort cell-free DNA reveals health of organ transplants

    When cells die, whether through apoptosis or necrosis, the DNA and other molecules found in those cells don't just disappear. They wind up in the blood stream, where degraded bits and pieces can be extracted. This cell-free DNA (cfDNA) is degraded due to its exposure to enzymes in the blood but is n more

  • Genetic study shows how malaria mutations beat treatments

    Scientists have discovered that the malaria parasite Plasmodium vivax is evolving rapidly to adapt to conditions in different geographical locations, in particular to defend itself against widely-used antimalarial drugs. The study provides a foundation for using genomic surveillance to guide effecti more

How to Clone a Mammoth: The Science of De-Extinction

Could we bring back mammoths? Should we bring back mammoths? Beth Shapiro explains the science of de-extinction and Jurassic Park, and asks if it’s a good idea at all.Could extinct species, like mammoths and passenger pigeons, be brought back to life? Beth Shapiro, evolutionary biologist and pio ... more

The Mobile Genome

Why attend? Transposons are abundant in most genomes and constitute about 50% of the human genome. They are usually considered genomic parasites, the mobilisation of which can cause harmful genetic mutations. Various mechanisms have evolved throughout the tree of life to defend genomes from the de
