RESEARCH PROGRESS
DBG2OLC—an ultra-efficient genome assembler for large genomes expected to significantly boost the adoptions of single molecule DNA sequencing technologies
The Human Genome Project, the biggest biomedical project humans have ever endeavored to the date, greatly accelerated the advancement of DNA sequencing technologies. Three generations of DNA sequencing technologies have been developed in the last three decades, and we are at the crossroads of the second and third ge... more
Novel TRIMCyp Gene Identified
Novel genes are so called because their functions differ from their parental genes. While several theories have been explored to explain the diversification of gene functions, including duplication and retrotransposition, the origin of novel genes remains a longstanding debate in evolutionary biology, and understand... more
Yaping Zhang’s research group has made progress in their research on Canine and Human evolution to high altitudes in the Qinghai Tibetan Plateau
High-altitude hypoxic environments are an extreme test of survival for humans and mammals alike. The Qinghai Tibetan Plateau is one such environment. Dogs have followed humans in their settlement patterns since ancient times, even to the wilds of the Tibetan plateau, and share similar adaptive abilities with humans ... more
Long Distance Truck Drivers Nudge the HIV Spreading
The reason of Yunnan Province being an area with high frequency of HIV is complicated. One of the possible explanations is the special geographic location of Yunnan with miles of shared borders with several south-eastern Asia countries which lets HIV easily spread across borders.
  Recently, the research group hea... more
