More than half of the species’ genomes have now been sequenced and assembled. But starfish, flatworms and truffles are a different matter, Dan Mead discovers
Single cell RNA sequencing data can be used to identify cell types. Martin Hemberg and Vladimir Kiselev explain how their new scmap method can help the Human Cell Atlas initiative by analysing this data.
Dan Mead is a happy man, here’s why …
Crickets’ genomes are tricky things, just when you think you know how big they are, they just get a whole lot bigger
06.04.18 Valentine Svensson explains how the new computational method SpacialDE interprets single-cell data to identify which genes are switched on in different locations, allowing researchers to zoom into the structures of tissues.
Dan Mead discovers that conferences can be a great way to build fruitful research collaborations…
Finding a blackberry bush was as easy a pie, but then Dan discovered that there are 300 different species… and even experts struggle to tell the difference
