Congratulations to Nuria for passing with honors her Ph.D. viva!
We finally put it together: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2018/10/16/443754
Congratulations to Merly for her PhD awarded today on NGS phylogenomics! You’ve been a GREAT student. Good luck for your postdoc at UC Santa Cruz. We’ll miss you…
New paper just out @GenomeMedicine! We report the impact of sequencing depth (and sampling effort) towards variant detection, genotype accuracy, clonal inference and phylogenetic reconstruction from single-cell cancer data. https://rdcu.be/LJ4E
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. https://academic.oup.com/bioinformatics/advance-article-abstract/doi/10.1093/bioinformatics/bty146/4925260?redirectedFrom=fulltext Source code, full documentation, and tutorials including a “Getting started” guide are available at http://github.com/merlyescalona/ngsphy
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, https://academic.oup.com/mbe/article-abstract/35/3/743/4775142?redirectedFrom=fulltext
Congratulations Iria for publishing a very nice paper describing the assembly of the genome of a beautiful angelfish! https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-19430-x
Two open Marie Curie PhD positions (CONTRA ITN) in computational cancer evolution at our lab. Please apply! ESR 11: Estimation of tumour growth rates from NGS data Understanding the process of tumour growth is fundamental for many aspects of cancer … Continue reading
