In Nature this week: ancient British genomes highlight influence of migration, and more.

Two teams sequenced the genomes of 20 individuals who lived in Iron Age, Roman-era, or Anglo-Saxon Britain to examine the population history of the region.

The genetic evidence supports a link between migrations and important cultural shifts like the emergence of agriculture or metal tools occurring in parallel.

Researchers report on the genomes of two ancient hunter-gatherers from the Caucasus.

Researchers used whole-genome sequencing to assess relapse, re-infection, and patient-to-patient transmission patterns in patients with multiple C. difficile infections at an Irish hospital.

A new study shows how NGS could help researchers retrace the history of livestock agriculture by sequencing DNA found in parchment.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – De novo mutations linked to schizophrenia are over-represented in chromatin remodeling genes, researchers from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Trinity College Dublin repo

The contract runs for two years, with an option to be extended for a third year, and is worth at least $490,000 per year.
