In Genome Biology this week: catalog of curated human genes and transcripts; potential biomarkers for aging; and more.

In PNAS this week: immune cell profiling of wild baboons by social status, metabolomics profiling of esophageal tumors, and more.

And Settled

Science reports that the Salk Institute has settled the third of its three gender discrimination lawsuits.

Using Hi-C, genome sequencing, and optical mapping, researchers profiled structural variants in multiple cancer cell lines, leading to potential non-coding drivers.

Case Goes On

Nature News reports that the Salk Institute has asked for the scope of a gender discrimination lawsuit brought against it to be narrowed.

The Salk Institute has settled two of the three gender discrimination lawsuits brought against it last year, Science reports.
