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
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
