Two scientists from the University of Utah have been named to the prestigious National Academy of Medicine: geneticist Mario R. Capecchi and Vivian S. Lee, dean of the medical school. Capecchi and Lee are among 70 new U.S. members and 10 non-U.S. members elected in the class of 2015, the academy announced this week. They…Details
Science is the pursuit of truth. What could be more clear-cut than that? Yet for today’s scientists, that search can be a winding, unsettling path through a constantly evolving landscape. Funding constraints, new trends and a growing emphasis on translation has investigators worrying there may be no place for them when the ground stops shaking.…Details
A global reference for human genetic variation The 1000 Genomes Project set out to provide a comprehensive description of common human genetic variation by applying whole-genome sequencing to a diverse set of individuals from multiple populations. Here we report completion of the project, having reconstructed the genomes of 2,504 individuals from 26 populations using a…Details
