      Extant Canis lupus genetic diversity can be grouped into three phylogenetically distinct clades: Eurasian and American wolves and domestic dogs.1 Genetic studies have suggested these groups trace their origins to a wolf ...
    • Multi-omic detection of Mycobacterium leprae in archaeological human dental calculus 

      Fotakis, Anna K.; Denham, Sean Dexter; Mackie, Meaghan; Orbegozo, Miren Iraeta; Mylopotamitaki, Dorothea; Gopalakrishnan, Shyam; Sicheritz-Pontén, Thomas; Olsen, Jesper V.; Cappellini, Enrico; Zhang, Guojie; Christophersen, Axel; Gilbert, Thomas; Vågene, Åshild J (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Mineralized dental plaque (calculus) has proven to be an excellent source of ancient biomolecules. Here we present a Mycobacterium leprae genome (6.6-fold), the causative agent of leprosy, recovered via shotgun sequencing ...
