Evolution: Polyploid gains

By Darren J. Burgess Nature Reviews Genetics 16, 196 (2015). doi:10.1038/nrg3925 Author: Darren J. Burgess The induction of polyploidy — that is, duplication or acquisition of entire sets of chromosomes — is a common event in the evolutionary histories of various species.

Tumorigenesis: Order matters

By Sarah Seton-Rogers Nature Reviews Genetics 16, 193 (2015). doi:10.1038/nrg3923 Author: Sarah Seton-Rogers In tumour cells containing many mutations, it is unclear whether mutation order influences phenotypes. Although early mutations might dictate which later mutations can confer a selective advantage, some Read Full Article Here For more great articles: Nature Reviews Genetics

Gene regulation: Multiple mechanisms of small RNAs

Article Abstract: Different types of non-coding RNAs have diverse roles in gene regulation. A new study shows how a single quorum regulatory RNA (Qrr) can regulate target RNAs by distinct mechanisms during bacterial quorum sensing.Vibrio species of bacteria use multiple related Qrr RNAs, each ~100 from Nature Reviews Genetics – Issue – nature.com science feeds…
