Before Christmas, Kamil and me published two paper on bioRxiv: Genomic features of asexual animalshttps://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2018/12/17/497495 Are there any general consequences of asexuality? We reviewed and reanalysed evidence in 24 asexual animal genomes available. Asexual reproduction drives the reduction of transposable element loadhttps://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2018/12/19/501361 Sexual reproduction drives success of parasitic TEs. Abandon sex and you will be […]
With some delay (due to the great chinese firewall): New paper out about the genomic landscape of early parallel speciation: Stick Insect Genomes Reveal Natural Selection’s Role in Parallel Speciation Got the cover picture and quite some media coverage (click details on altmetric batch to see).
I recently got a Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook and I am pretty excited about the power of this 1.5 kg machine. The intention is to use this ultrabook/tablet hybrid as ‘office’ and NGS data handling system on the go. The specs are fantastic… energy efficient Intel i7 Haswell with 4 cores, 8 GB memory and […]
It is finally published: Genomic evidence for ameiotic evolution in the bdelloid rotifer Adineta vaga available as open access. It was an exciting time working on this project. Thanks, Jean-François!
