Frontiers | Divergence With Gene Flow and Contrasting Population Size Blur the Species Boundary in Cycas Sect. Asiorientales, as Inferred From Morphology and RAD-Seq Data

Introduction Incipient species are critical for evolutionary biologists to study speciation, but they also challenge taxonomy due to gene flow or ancestral polymorphism. The former and contrasting population size lead to larger intraspecific than interspecific variations, a phenomenon called the species-definition anomaly zone (Jiao and Yang, 2021). The latter results…

Deep learning and genomics: predicting gene expression from DNA sequence

The human genome is enormously complex. Before the first draft of the genome was completed in 2003, there was an optimism that knowing its sequence could smoothly translate into cures and treatments for various diseases. Unfortunately, the scientific community quickly discovered that having the DNA sequence is still many steps…

Requirement of Xk and Vps13a for the P2X7-mediated phospholipid scrambling and cell lysis in mouse T cells

Significance The extracellular concentration of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) reaches several hundred micromoles in the inflamed tissues or tumor environment. A high concentration of ATP activates P2X7, a purinergic receptor, and induces the formation of a nonselective cation channel, accompanied by reversible phosphatidylserine (PtdSer) exposure, leading to cell lysis. Here, we…

Novel CRISPR Tool Activates Instead of Editing Human Immune Cell Genes

Scientists at Gladstone Institutes and UC San Francisco (UCSF) say they have co-opted the CRISPR-Cas9 system to forcibly activate genes—rather than edit them—in human immune cells. The method, known as CRISPRa, lets them discover genes that play a role in immune cell biology more thoroughly and rapidly than previously possible,…

The role of ATXR6 expression in modulating genome stability and transposable element repression in Arabidopsis

Significance The plant-specific H3K27me1 methyltransferases ATXR5 and ATXR6 play integral roles connecting epigenetic silencing with genomic stability. However, how H3K27me1 relates to these processes is poorly understood. In this study, we performed a comprehensive transcriptome analysis of tissue- and ploidy-specific expression in a hypomorphic atxr5/6 mutant and revealed that the…

Comparison of CNV analysis methods: Array CGH vs NGS

Rare genetic disorders are caused by variants in major functional genes. Most are SNV or INDEL variants, but SVs, such as CNVs or chromosomal variants, can also be the cause. Recently, a large-scale study has also been published showing that CNVs were identified in 11-12% more infants and children with…

RedChIP identifies noncoding RNAs associated with genomic sites occupied by Polycomb and CTCF proteins

Abstract Nuclear noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) are key regulators of gene expression and chromatin organization. The progress in studying nuclear ncRNAs depends on the ability to identify the genome-wide spectrum of contacts of ncRNAs with chromatin. To address this question, a panel of RNA–DNA proximity ligation techniques has been developed. However,…
