Using whole-genome sequencing and comparative genomics, a University of Maryland-led research team helped link Bacillus anthracis spores to a source lab following a series of anthrax attacks in the US in 2001.

A University of British Columbia-led research team has brought together genomic, transcriptomic, and other data in their effort to understand a fungal symbiont of the mountain pine beetle.

Researchers involved in the International Coffee Genome Sequencing Consortium are using Roche 454, Illumina, and Sanger methods in their effort to sequence, assembly, and annotate the genome of Coffea canephora.

Using a combination of exome sequencing and microarray-based copy number analyses, researchers have identified mutations involved in a type of pediatric brain cancer called medulloblastoma.

A team of researchers from Baylor College of Medicine and University of Texas at Austin have described their strategy for forensically determining the direction of HIV transmission between individuals and identifying index cases.

Researchers from Europe, the UK, and the US sequenced and characterized the genome of an infant gut microbe called Bifidobacterium bifidum PRL2010, finding genetic evidence that the bug can use sugars found in the mucin lining the human gastrointestinal tract.

The US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute now uses a collection of next-gen sequencers from a variety of firms, following the phasing out of its Sanger machines.
