This Week in PNAS

In PNAS this week: diversity and spread of Yersinia pestis, local adaptations in switchgrass, and more.

A recent pair of papers presenting deep learning approaches to mass spec proteomic data analysis build on several previous efforts to develop such methods.

Two research groups analyzed ancient DNA samples from across the Arctic to tease out how populations in Siberia and North America are related to one another.

Researchers reconstructed eight Yersinia pestis genomes using a method called "SNPEvaluation" that demonstrated genetic diversification among samples. 

This Week in Nature

In Nature this week: resequencing hundreds of chickpea varieties gives peek into its domestication, and more.

The 'forest tundra,' 'steppe-forest,' and 'southern steppe' populations all have slightly different genetic ancestry contributions.

Speakers during a session on research rigor and reproducibility said that cores could help push researchers to adopt practices that improve reproducibility.

This Week in Nature

In Nature this week: genetic analysis of Anatolian farmers, cotton genome analysis, and more.

The researchers found evidence of genetic continuity in Anatolia, even as the subsistence strategy changed from hunting and gathering to farming.

Two ancient DNA studies published today examined admixture and genetic changes among Iberian populations, starting from the Paleolithic Era.
