Nik Joshi assisted with the bioinformatics work involved in this new paper in PLOS Genetics: SERPINB11 Frameshift Variant Associated with Novel Hoof Specific Phenotype in Connemara Ponies Find out more about how we can lend our bioinformatics and statistical expertise to help you with your research.
Monica Britton was involved in some recent work that has just been published in the Environmental Science and Pollution journal: Chronic exposures to low and high concentrations of ibuprofen elicit different gene response patterns in a euryhaline fish. Monica was involved generating a transcriptome assembly and subsequently annotating it from comparisons of all contigs with a custom subset of the nr… Read more »
The Assemblathon project is intended to be an ongoing set of contests between developers of genome assembly software to determine how good different assemblers are at tackling different problems relating to this growing field. Results from the second competition (Assemblathon 2) have just been published in the journal Gigascience: Assemblathon 2: evaluating de novo… Read more »
The Assemblathon, an international consortium of researchers interested in advancing the field of genome assembly, have published their first set of findings as to the current state of genome assembler performance: Assemblathon 1: A competitive assessment of de novo short read assembly methods The paper, published in the journal Genome Research, features the… Read more »
