NGSphy: phylogenomic simulation of next-generation sequencing data

NGSphy, our tool for simulating NGS reads along gene trees or genome-wide along a species tree with multiple gene families, is now published in Bioinformatics. Source code, full documentation, and tutorials including a “Getting started” guide are available at

Substitution Rates Predicted by Stability-Constrained Models of Protein Evolution Are Not Consistent with Empirical Data

Both stability-constrained and structure-constrained substitution models are required to realistically predict the effect of mutations during protein evolution. A great study with Ugo Bastolla’s lab just published in Molecular Biology and Evolution,
