The genomes of modern sled dogs, an ancient Siberian dog, and an ancient wolf revealed genetic similarity between the ancient dog and modern sled dogs.

The team also found that the proportion of infected people didn't change substantially during the screening period, consistent with beneficial containment.

Genotypes for more than 12,000 individuals from the Americas revealed contributions from European colonization, the Atlantic slave trade, and other migrations.

The UCSD spinout has developed a modified version of the Hi-C protocol to capture chromatin conformation that uses multiple restriction enzymes.

A study found that cis-regulatory variation modifies the penetrance of coding variants, and that variants' regulatory haplotype configuration affects disease risk.

With FALCON-Phase, investigators used PacBio long reads and Hi-C data from Phase Genomics to assemble a haplotype-phased, diploid genome for a hybrid bull.

A team reconstructed 38 percent of the maternal genome of an 18th century Icelandic immigrant and found that his mother came from a specific African region.

Investigators identified ties between autism spectrum disorder and mitochondrial haplogroups in mtDNA variant data from nearly 1,000 ASD-affected families.

The method generates megabase-scale phased haplotype blocks and can be automated and scaled up to process samples for population sequencing projects.
