Influenza viruses rapidly diversify within individual human infections. Several recent studies have deep-sequenced clinical influenza infections to identify viral variation within hosts, but it remains unclear how within-host mutations fare in the...
Separate authorship categories to recognize data collectors and code developers
Peter SudmantI completely disagree w/ this: nature.com/articles/s4155… - data collection and coding both completely warrant full authorship and respect in my opinion. Science takes a great deal of input from many parties - let's acknowledge and support everyone's contributions w/o tiers
Author summary Sex chromosomes evolve from autosomes yet harbor many unique characteristics that differentiate them from autosomes and from each other. Male-specific Y-chromosomes degenerate: they lose most of their protein-coding genes and...
Evidence has clearly established that women are underrepresented in science, technology,
engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines despite decades of interventions aimed
at achieving gender parity (National Science Foundation, 2017). The...
An in vitro method was developed to screen mRNA sites for psedouridine modification by specific pseudouridylating enzymes and identify an RNA structural motif for Pus1, which can be used to predict new pseudouridylated mRNA targets in vivo.
Responding to the agency’s stern rebuke, Vas Narasimhan, the company’s executive, tried to reassure investors that Novartis did not intentionally deceive the F.D.A. while seeking approval for its $2.1 million gene therapy.
Women are under-represented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Despite the recent emphasis on diversity in STEM, our understanding of what drives
differences between women and men scientists remains limited. This, in turn,...
Peter SudmantThis is fascinating - massive disparity, but progress and strategies to increase gender parity at conferences
Peter SudmantHey folks! The Sudmant Lab is hiring motivated, friendly and collaborative postdocs interested in the genomics and evolution of cellular and organismal diversity, aging, and genome structure!
Check out the job description and please RT!
Genetic analyses of ancestrally diverse populations show evidence of heterogeneity across ancestries and provide insights into clinical implications, highlighting the importance of including ancestrally diverse populations to maximize genetic...
