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
Harry just joined our lab as a grad student to work on the benchmarking of clonal tree inference from cancer NGS data. He recently completed is MSc degree in Bioinformatics at the Free University of Berlin. Willkommen!
A random walk column has been published on JME on Cancer molecular evolution. These are a few lines with some pointers about potential uses of evolutionary approaches in cancer. http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs00239-015-9695-7
I talked today about species trees a the barcoding meeting in Guelph, Canada
Leo Martins has recently left our lab to start a new adventure at Molly Stevens Lab at Imperial College London. There he will work on statistical analysis of Raman spectra for different applications, and probably on other things. It … Continue reading
We just arrive from our third sampling trip to Cape Verde. We went to the Boa Vista Island, where we sampled several populations of Trovaoconus (and Africonus) snails with our colleages Rafa Zardoya (MNCN), Julio Rozas (UB), Manolo Tenorio (UCA) … Continue reading
