In celebration of Earth Day this year, our own Andrew Gottscho, a conservation biologist and software field operations engineer, reports about his own experiences with endangered animals and the importance of genomics to study and help conserve these populations.
Elfin, Aurora and Qila leave their mark — Reference-Quality genome assemblies for the Northern Sea Otter and Beluga Whale inform conservation efforts and health studies
In celebration of their upcoming 25th anniversary, The WellcomeTrust Sanger Institute will be collaborating with a number of leaders in the genomics field, including 10x Genomics, on their 25 Genomes Project, an exciting effort to comprehensively sequence 25 new genomes of species found in the UK.
In a recent Nature Communications publication, Hammond et al., report on sequencing, assembly and annotation of the draft North American bullfrog genome.
Genomic analysis is an important tool for conservation biology, enabling researchers to help better understand and preserve endangered species. In a new Biorxiv preprint, researchers at Johns Hopkins describe a cost-effective and low DNA input method of de novo assembly for the endangered Hawaiian monk seal genome using 10x Linked-Reads and Supernova™ software.
