      Homotherium was a genus of large-bodied scimitar-toothed cats, morphologically distinct from any extant felid species, that went extinct at the end of the Pleistocene [1, 2, 3, 4]. They possessed large, saber-form serrated ...
    • Inference of natural selection from ancient DNA 

      Dehasque, Marianne; Ávila-Arcos, María C; Díez-del-Molino, David; Fumagalli, Matteo; Guschanski, Katerina; Lorenzen, Eline D.; Malaspinas, Anna-Sapfo; Marques-Bonet, Tomas; Martin, Michael David; Murray, Gemma G.R.; Papadopulos, Alexander; Therkildsen, Nina Overgaard; Wegmann, Daniel; Dalén, Love; Foote, Andrew (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Evolutionary processes, including selection, can be indirectly inferred based on patterns of genomic variation among contemporary populations or species. However, this often requires unrealistic assumptions of ancestral ...
    • Plasmodium vivax Malaria Viewed through the Lens of an Eradicated European Strain 

      van Dorp, Lucy; Gelabert, Pere; Rieux, Adrien; De Manuel, Marc; De-Dios, Toni; Gopalakrishnan, Shyam; Carøe, Christian; Sandoval-Velasco, Marcela; Fregel, Rosa; Olalde, Iñigo; Escosa, Raül; Aranda, Carles; Huijben, Silvie; Mueller, Ivo; Marques-Bonet, Tomas; Balloux, Francois; Gilbert, Marcus Thomas Pius; Lalueza-Fox, Carles (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The protozoan Plasmodium vivax is responsible for 42% of all cases of malaria outside Africa. The parasite is currently largely restricted to tropical and subtropical latitudes in Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. Though, ...
