Comparative analysis of multiple genomes in a phylogenetic framework dramatically improves the precision and sensitivity of evolutionary inference, producing more robust results than single-genome analyses can provide. The genomes of 12 Drosophila species, ten of which are presented here for the first time (sechellia, simulans, yakuba, erecta, ananassae,(More)
The sequence of the mouse genome is a key informational tool for understanding the contents of the human genome and a key experimental tool for biomedical research. Here, we report the results of an international collaboration to produce a high-quality draft sequence of the mouse genome. We also present an initial comparative analysis of the mouse and human(More)
The prevalence of overweight and obesity is rising in many developed and developing countries and, most worryingly, among children. Within the EU, Scotland has the highest prevalence, more than twice that of the Netherlands, and in England almost a quarter of children now enter primary school either overweight or obese, rising to one in three on leaving at(More)
