A Draft Sequence of the Neandertal Genome
Kissing Cousins Neandertals, our closest relatives, ranged across Europe and Southwest Asia before their extinction approximately 30,000 years ago. Green et al. (p. 710) report a draft sequence ofExpand

Genetic history of an archaic hominin group from Denisova Cave in Siberia
Using DNA extracted from a finger bone found in Denisova Cave in southern Siberia, we have sequenced the genome of an archaic hominin to about 1.9-fold coverage. This individual is from a group thatExpand

A High-Coverage Genome Sequence from an Archaic Denisovan Individual
Ancient Genomics The Denisovans were archaic humans closely related to Neandertals, whose populations overlapped with the ancestors of modern-day humans. Using a single-stranded library preparationExpand

Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds
To better determine the history of modern birds, we performed a genome-scale phylogenetic analysis of 48 species representing all orders of Neoaves using phylogenomic methods created to handleExpand

Evidence for the widespread coupling of alternative splicing and nonsense-mediated mRNA decay in humans
To better understand the role of alternative splicing, we conducted a large-scale analysis of reliable alternative isoforms of known human genes. Each isoform was classified according to its spliceExpand

The Developmental Transcriptome of Drosophila melanogaster
Drosophila melanogaster is one of the most well studied genetic model organisms, nonetheless its genome still contains unannotated coding and non-coding genes, transcripts, exons, and RNA editingExpand

Patterns of damage in genomic DNA sequences from a Neandertal
High-throughput direct sequencing techniques have recently opened the possibility to sequence genomes from Pleistocene organisms. Here we analyze DNA sequences determined from a Neandertal, aExpand

Comparative genomics reveals insights into avian genome evolution and adaptation
Birds are the most species-rich class of tetrapod vertebrates and have wide relevance across many research fields. We explored bird macroevolution using full genomes from 48 avian speciesExpand
