  • 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.

  • A Unifying Genetic Model for Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy

    Sequence variants shared by patients with a genetically complex form of muscular dystrophy explain how the disease arises.

  • Exposing a DUX Tale

    A DNA sequence stabilizes the expression of a gene that may affect muscle development and lead to muscular dystrophy.
