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
Jose Tubio is moving to the University of Santiago de Compostela with his team. Best wishes Jose!
Congratulations to our EXCELLENT Laura!
The Neolithic expansion at both shores of the Mediterranean Sea was not different after all. A nice study applying approximation Bayesian computation for model selection and parameters estimation. Just published in Molecular Biology and Evolution, https://academic.oup.com/mbe/article/34/12/3232/4237582
ProtASR: An Evolutionary Framework for Ancestral Protein Reconstruction with Selection on Folding Stability
A new evolutionary framework for ancestral protein reconstruction accounting for structural constraints, just published in Systematic Biology https://academic.oup.com/sysbio/article-abstract/66/6/1054/2840014/ProtASR-An-Evolutionary-Framework-for-Ancestral?redirectedFrom=fulltext
A comprehensive review on the diverse disciplines of nonhuman forensic genetics, just published in PLoS Genetics. Indeed, it is a fantastic collaboration with the lab of Antonio Amorim and Angel Carracedo: http://journals.plos.org/plosgenetics/article?id=10.1371/journal.pgen.1006960
A very interesting paper on heterogeneous recombination in Hepatitis B virus, just published in Infection, Genetics and Evolution http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1567134817302721
Nice to contribute to this consensus statement in Nature Reviews Cancer about classifying tumors according to their ecological and evolutionary features: http://go.nature.com/2fopLbX
Our comment about misusing multiregional trees in cancer is out: Alves JA, Prieto T, Posada D. 2017. Multiregional tumor trees are not phylogenies. Trends in Cancer: 0.1016/j.trecan.2017.06.004 https://t.co/HVb8dVpi6O Here we show that multiregional tumor trees built from bulk … Continue reading
