Using Pacific Biosciences reads polished with short read and transcriptome sequences, researchers generated a de novo genome assembly for Castor canadensis.

Data presented at the Plant and Animal Genome conference points to genome-wide association study potential in bananas, despite the plant's genetic complexity.

Following from genetic studies of compulsive behavior in dogs, researchers have starting collecting behavioral information for dogs in the Darwin's Dogs project.

CSHL scientists described the work in a paper published online earlier this month and in a presentation this week at the annual Plant and Animal Genomes conference.

At the conference, the Broad Institute's David Jaffe presented a strategy for sequencing reference genomes from many different horses for an estimated price tag of around $25,000 apiece.

The researchers are starting to piece together clues to biology and genetic diversity of the koala, including an assessment of its immune gene repertoire.
