How bats evolved to avoid cancer

A new paper titled "Long-read sequencing reveals rapid evolution of immunity and cancer-related genes in bats" in Genome Biology and Evolution shows that rapid evolution in bats may account for the animals' extraordinary ...

Piecing thylacine DNA back together

The DNA of extinct species is providing a window into their biology, evolution, and natural history. However, after an animal's death, its DNA invariably breaks into tiny pieces, making it difficult to computationally reconstruct.
