Finally our paper on Bayesian species tree estimation is published in Systematic Biology, although it has been available (advance access) there since 2014. This is a very nice method implemented by Leo Martins in the software Guenomu, in which a … Continue reading
Leo and I have published another paper on the UCA test, maybe the last one of a series of papers showing why and how Theobald’s UCA test is biased, and proposing proper ways of doing this https://biologydirect.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s13062-016-0120-y
Our first draft of the mussel genome has been published in PLoS ONE. http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0151561 We are working on a much more polished genome with more depth and long reads. Hopefully it will be ready very soon. D
Diego Darriba defended today with success (“Sobresaliente cum laude“) his Ph.D thesis entitled “Selection of models of genomic evolution in HPC environments” supervised by Guillermo López (UDC), Ramón Doallo (UDC) and David Posada (UVIGO). The thesis was carried out jointly carried … Continue reading
Bernardo Rodríguez just joined our lab to do a PhD with Jose Tubio and David Posada on transposable element evolution in cancer.
Jose Tubío just joined our group as a Ramon and Cajal fellow, coming from the University of Cambridge and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (UK). Jose is focused on the study of transposable elements mobilized somatically in cancer genomes, and … Continue reading
A paper coauthored by Iria Fernández-Silva has just appeared in PNAS Early Edition http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2015/12/09/1512609112 See comments on: http://news.sciencemag.org/evolution/2015/12/what-mites-your-face-say-about-where-you-came http://www.wired.com/2015/12/your-face-is-covered-in-mites-with-secrets-to-tell/ Congratulations Iria!
Here I discuss (in Galician) why reaching the general public ends up being quite important for science and for the society in general: http://www.gciencia.com/tribuna/o-aprecio-pola-ciencia
Our paper on SimPhy, a simulator of species, locus and gene trees has been accepted in Systematic Biology and is available ahead of print at: http://sysbio.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2015/10/26/sysbio.syv082.abstract
