  • Melanesian Blond Hair Is Caused by an Amino Acid Change in TYRP1

    Naturally blond hair in Solomon Islanders maps to a missense mutation in a gene associated with pigmentation.

  • Going Solid-State

    The first nanopore sequencers will depend on protein pores, but many in the field envision replacing these biological channels with solid-state ones.

  • Search for Pore-fection

    At long last, nanopore sequencing seems poised to leave the lab, promising a new and better way to decode DNA.

  • A Fine-Scale Chimpanzee Genetic Map from Population Sequencing

    Chimpanzees show similar genetic recombination rates as humans but differ in the genomic regions involved.

  • Around the World

    In science news around the world this week, James Cameron completed the world's first solo dive to the deepest part of the world's oceans, a long-running dispute at one of France's leading biology institutes has culminated in the removal of the director, Russian engineers intentionally crashed the telecommunications satellite Express-AM4, and the U.S. Supreme Court has cut the ground from under some hotly contested biotech patents.
