• #### Inference of Candidate Germline Mutator Loci in Humans from Genome-Wide Haplotype Data ﻿

(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2017-01)
The rate of germline mutation varies widely between species but little is known about the extent of variation in the germline mutation rate between individuals of the same species. Here we demonstrate that an allele that ...
• #### The Macronuclear Genome of $\textit{Stentor coeruleus}$ Reveals Tiny Introns in a Giant Cell ﻿

(Elsevier (Cell Press), 2017-02-20)
The giant, single-celled organism $\textit{Stentor coeruleus}$ has a long history as a model system for studying pattern formation and regeneration in single cells. $\textit{Stentor coeruleus}$ [1, 2] is a heterotrichous ...
• #### Physical constraints determine the logic of bacterial promoter architectures ﻿

(Oxford University Press, 2014-01-29)
Site-specific transcription factors (TFs) bind to their target sites on the DNA, where they regulate the rate at which genes are transcribed. Bacterial TFs undergo facilitated diffusion (a combination of 3D diffusion around ...
• #### Population genomics reveals that an anthropophilic population of $\textit{Aedes aegypti}$ mosquitoes in West Africa recently gave rise to American and Asian populations of this major disease vector ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2017-02-28)
$\textbf{BACKGROUND}$: The mosquito $\textit{Aedes aegypti}$ is the main vector of dengue, Zika, chikungunya and yellow fever viruses. This major disease vector is thought to have arisen when the African subspecies ...
