Researchers sequenced 120 finches from the Galápagos and Cocos Island to resolve bird phylogeny and explore the genetic basis of fast-evolving features.

Researchers used histone marks associated with active promotors or enhancers to explore regulatory element evolution in 20 diverse mammalian species.

Killer whale, walrus, manatee, and bottlenose dolphin sequences suggest convergent molecular evolution often occurs independent of shared phenotypic adaptations.

The team tracked down several hundred SNPs in the Ebola genome, including mutations that could alter the effectiveness of treatments targeting certain virus sequences.

Using a combination of genotyping and sequencing, an international team traces the history of a Mycobacterium tuberculosis lineage and its links to drug resistance.
