  • Widespread Divergence Between Incipient Anopheles gambiae Species Revealed by Whole Genome Sequences

    Gene flow among African malaria vectors is more restricted than previously thought.

  • SNP Genotyping Defines Complex Gene-Flow Boundaries Among African Malaria Vector Mosquitoes

    Populations of African malaria vectors show signs of selective sweeps and ongoing speciation in their genomes.

  • IDH2 Mutations in Patients with d-2-Hydroxyglutaric Aciduria

    A mutation that changes the specificity of an enzyme in human cancer is also found in an inherited metabolic disorder.

  • From Science's Online Daily News Site

    ScienceNOW reported this week on the biggest genome ever, possible building blocks of life in Titan's atmosphere, how volcanoes feed plankton, and a new genetic analysis that suggests that thoroughbred foremothers hailed from Ireland and Britain, among other stories.

  • Sequencing of Culex quinquefasciatus Establishes a Platform for Mosquito Comparative Genomics

    The genome of a third mosquito species reveals distinctions related to vector capacities and habitat preferences.

  • From Science's Online Daily News Site

    ScienceNOW reported this week that the silk produced by a Madagascar spider is the toughest biomaterial yet discovered, an extremely weak magnetic field stretches across the universe, and a long-lost Viking settlement has been discovered in Ireland, among other stories.

  • Mosaicism—Switch or Spectrum?

    A high rate of recombination restores the function of a mutated gene that encodes keratin, giving rise to the “confetti” spots in a rare skin disorder.
