Researchers sequenced the mitochondrial genomes of two ancient bison and compared them to other bison samples, and found two waves of bison dispersal.

Two research groups reported on statistical methods for uncovering methylated cytosine and/or adenine bases using electrical current cues from Oxford Nanopore sequencers.

In Genome Research this week: American alligator genome assembly, microbiome of premature infants, and more.

Researchers found the European bison's origins go back to ancient interbreeding between steppe bison and cattle, shedding light on early cave art detailing the animal.

The centers will support the NCI's Genomic Data Analysis Network, which is tasked with creating tools and strategies to study large-scale genomics data.

The grant from St. Baldrick's Foundation will be used to support UCSC's genomics and informatics Treehouse Childhood Cancer Initiative.

The open challenge will utilize the National Cancer Institute's Cancer Genomics Cloud Pilots, a computing network for storing and analyzing genomic data.

The new genome assembly for a western lowland gorilla named Susie has fewer gaps than a prior assembly produced from short reads and Sanger sequencing.

Developers of proposals selected for the NCI-funded Cancer Genomics Cloud pilots have kicked of various stages of platform testing ahead of the nine-month evaluation phase
