- Our paper: Improving transcriptome assembly through error correction of high-throughput sequence reads. Matt MacManes discusses his paper on de novo transcriptome assembly.
- Genomic evidence of rapid and stable adaptive oscillations over seasonal time scales in Drosophila. This preprint from Bergland et al. on seasonal variation in selective pressure in Drosophila was also one of the most viewed preprints last month.
- Timing of ancient human Y lineage depends on the mutation rate: A comment on Mendez et al. Melissa Wilson Sayres comments on a recent paper describing a new basal lineage of the human Y chromosome genealogy.
- Thoughts on: Loss and Recovery of Genetic Diversity in Adapting Populations of HIV. An exchange between Richard Neher and the authors of a preprint on the population genetics of HIV.
