Dear Colleague,

 

 

Genome Biology is pleased to share with you our April content update, featuring journal news, top articles and our most recent table of contents.

 
 
Featured articles

 
 
 
Fan et al

African evolutionary history inferred from whole genome sequence data of 44 indigenous African populations

Fan et al. find high levels of genomic variation correlated with geography and language across 92 individuals from 44 indigenous African populations.

 
 
 
Lorente-Galdos et al

Whole-genome sequence analysis of a Pan African set of samples reveals archaic gene flow from an extinct basal population of modern humans into sub-Saharan populations

Lorente-Galdos and colleagues sequence 21 individuals across Africa and identify an introgression event in sub-Saharan populations from an early divergent and extinct lineage.

 
 
 
Butt et al

CRISPR directed evolution of the spliceosome for resistance to splicing inhibitor

Butt et al. develop an evolution platform in plants to evolve a spliceosomal protein in rice to be resistant to splicing inhibitors, which can be used to engineer crops for improved performance or adaptation.
