Public data for the public good
The human genome project galvanized the scientific community around an ambitious goal. It produced several crucial discoveries, and a new era of research began. For the first time, it became possible to estimate the number of human genes and compile a ...
The evolutionary war — how to beat cancer in its own game
Cancer evolves. That much is known and agreed upon. Researchers still, however, debate the detailed picture of how cancer came to be and why it still plages our species is subject to debate. Studying cancer through an evolutionary lens could provide an...
Gene expression adaptation in yeast, mice, and humans
Coding vs. non-coding variants Mutations produce novelty. The kind of novel variants on which selection acts. These variants fall within two broad categories depending on location in the genome: protein-coding and regulatory sequences. The former pro...
