28.11.13: The daunting task of searching a genome to find the variation responsible for producing a genetic disease from among up to 40,000 variants can be simplified by combining large-scale mouse model and exome data, says Damian Smedley.
25.11.13: Annotating the human genome is not a short-term endeavour and, currently, it’s difficult even to know how much work we have ahead of us, says Jonathan Mudge.
19.11.13: Targeting multiple life stages of the malaria parasite could help in the development of reliable vaccines, explains Madushi Wanaguru
14.11.13: The majority of the genome has long been seen as ‘non-coding’. Vincenza Colonna explains how large data sets are enabling scientists to explore these regions and spot beneficial variation
