  • Computer Kid Makes Good

    Everyone involved in the Neandertal sequencing project at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology stresses the teamwork involved in sequencing the Neandertal genome. And yet Richard "Ed" Green, the postdoctoral fellow in charge, still stands out.

  • Targeted Investigation of the Neandertal Genome by Array-Based Sequence Capture

    Array capture of Neandertal DNA identifies amino acid substitutions that occurred after the split between humans and Neandertals.

  • The Genome of the Western Clawed Frog Xenopus tropicalis

    Assembly, annotation, and analysis of the frog genome compares gene content and synteny with the human and chicken genomes.

  • Analysis of Genetic Inheritance in a Family Quartet by Whole-Genome Sequencing

    Genomic sequencing of an entire family reveals the rate of spontaneous mutations in humans and identifies disease genes.

  • Mutations in DCC Cause Congenital Mirror Movements

    Humans who display involuntary symmetrical limb movements carry mutations in a gene required for nerve growth across the midline.

  • DNA Returned to Tribe, Raising Questions About Consent

    After a 6-year legal battle, Arizona State University has now agreed to return more than 100 DNA samples to the Havasupai, a tiny tribe of Native Americans who charged that their DNA had been collected by university researchers without proper consent, and pay $700,000, among other concessions.

  • From the Science Policy Blog

    ScienceInsider reported this week that NASA Administrator Charles Bolden told a Senate spending panel that space science could suffer if the U.S. Congress forces NASA to stick with the Constellation program, among other stories.
