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…

Multiplexed genome regulation in vivo with hyper-efficient Cas12a,Nature Cell Biology

Multiplexed modulation of endogenous genes is crucial for sophisticated gene therapy and cell engineering. CRISPR–Cas12a systems enable versatile multiple-genomic-loci targeting by processing numerous CRISPR RNAs (crRNAs) from a single transcript; however, their low efficiency has hindered in vivo applications. Through structure-guided protein engineering, we developed a hyper-efficient Lachnospiraceae bacterium Cas12a…

Genomic Stratification of Resectable CRLM Patients & Implications for Adjuvant Therapy and Survival

For a study, the researchers sought to see if genomic risk groups discovered by colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM) somatic mutation testing may be used for “molecularly-guided” adjuvant systemic chemotherapy and hepatic artery infusion of FUDR (SYS+HAI-FUDR). A prospective institutional database was analyzed for consecutive patients with resected CRLM and available…

Highly used R packages with no Python equivalent

The biggies are obviously DESeq2, limma and edgeR, but they are massive packages doing some very complex statistics, and also have dependency trees that would need to be considered. Depending on your background, you might want to look into the rtracklayer/GenomicRanges eco-system. While I personally am not a fan, I…
