Ecological genomics: teleophobes respond (too late)

Forecasting Ecological Genomics: High-Tech Animal Instrumentation Meets High-Throughput Sequencing Conclusion: Twenty years ago, an essay about sequencing genomes and remotely tracking animals across the globe in real time would have been the subject of science fiction. In 2015, there are over 50,000 animals being tracked [12], and single research groups now sequence dozens, up to hundreds, of individual genomes [17,82]. By embracing new technology and integrating these data streams into an ecological genomic framework (Fig 1), we are now poised…

A “new” code enables ecological adaptation

Distinct E-cadherin-based complexes regulate cell behaviour through miRNA processing or Src and p120 catenin activity Reported as: Discovery of new code makes reprogramming of cancer cells possible Excerpt: …an unexpected new biology that provides the code, the software for turning off cancer,” says the study’s senior investigator, Panos Anastasiadis, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Cancer Biology on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus. That code was unraveled by the discovery that adhesion proteins — the glue that keeps cells together —…
