Using consumer taste ratings, genomics, and metabolomics, researchers are starting to catalog genetic variants behind tasty tomatoes.

The European Commission recently awarded the researchers €1.5 million to probe the mechanics of heart failure using proteomic, genomic, and epidemiological approaches.

Researchers sequenced and analyzed the negative-sense RNA tilapia lake virus, implicated in large die-offs of farmed and wild tilapia in Israel and Ecuador.

Re-sequencing of the Schistosoma mansoni genome provides insight into the parasite's population history.

Contrary to the notion that Europeans introduced tuberculosis to Africa, sequencing data suggests the bacterium was already there.

Researchers unraveled relationships across four clusters of Acropora digitifera off of southern Japan by resequencing more than 150 samples from the area.

Yakutian horse

Horses in the Siberian Far East appear to have been introduced by the Yakut population within the last several hundred years, adapting to the environment since then.

ruff male morphs

Two studies have discovered a set of genes originating from a historical inversion that have evolved together to produce three very different groups of male ruffs.

Przewalski's horse, Mongolia.

Domestic and Przewalski's horse genomes reveal species-specific sequences, captive breeding effects, and insights into conserving the last of the wild horses.

Based on more than 100 genome sequences, researchers saw selection signatures in domestic pigs despite extensive gene flow between domestic and wild animals.
