DNA Methylation
One of the great mysteries in biology is how the many different cell types that make up our bodies are derived from a single cell and from one DNA sequence, or genome. We have learned a lot from studying the human genome, but have only partially unveiled the processes underlying cell determination...

Sequencing a human genome today costs less than 1% of what it did in 2006, and takes hours instead of years. Computing cost to analyze sequencing data has decreased far less than the cost of whole exome and whole genome sequencing (WES and WGS) and today constitutes a non-neglible fraction of the...

The Origins - It remains debated how Australia was initially populated and how changes in language and culture in the continent happened. Australia contains some of the oldest archaeological evidence of modern humans outside Africa dating back to about 50,000 years, which has been interpreted by...
