- New R21 arrive with Emrich as PI to look at genome structure in Culex mosquitoes. Will get some members of the community together to talk strains at the end of the semester.
- Rhodnius genome (kissing bug) published in PNAS. Continues to be one of the most read papers at UND according to ResearchGate.
- Lauren Assour successfully defends her PhD thesis. Congrats Lauren!!
- Paper on incipient speciation in Rhagaletis published in Ecology Letters
- Two flagship papers from the Anopheles genome consortium published in Science. Aaron Steele (introgression) and Lauren Assour (synteny) key contributors. Emrich co-led the second paper on the gambiae complex with Matt Hahn and Nora Besansky.
- Emrich and Besansky receive an NIH R21 to improve the genome of a neglected malaria vector.
- Aaron Steele received a ISMB travel award to present work related to R21. Congrats Aaron!
- Olivia Choudary and Nick Hazekamp present their work at CCGrid. Congrats!
- Emrich and others receive an internal $100K grant (inc. cost share) to purchase 6 high memory machines for bioinformatics.
- Novel virus discovered by Emrich and characterized by collaborators published in PLoS ONE.
- Shanw O'Neil's paper on expression differences under climate change published in Molecular Ecology.
- Shawn O'Neil publishes on assessing de novo transcriptome assembly metrics in BMC Genomics.
- Josh Livermore published collaborative work on infering bacterial life styles from fresh water bacteria genomes in Environmental Microbiology.
- i5K marker paper published in Journal of Heredity.
- Anopheles 16 genome marker paper published. Link here
- Andrew Rider (PhD) and Rory Carmichael (MS) successfully defend their theses. Congrats both!
- Assemblethon2 preprint made available online. Metaassembler used for the fish was primarily designed by former undergrad Paul Baranay (now in the PhD program at Yale).
- Conference paper looking at elasticity of NDBL bioinformatiacs applications in a heterogenous cloud environment accepted by CCGrid 2013. Andrew Thrasher is the key NDBL contributor.
- Journal paper on trait-based genomics accepted by BMC Genomics. Wei Zhang lead author.
- Emrich gives invited talk at the International Congress of Entomology held in Daegu, Korea.
- Journal paper on running bioinformatics applications on a heterogenous system accepted. Irena Lanc lead author.
- Emrich and new NDBL collaborator Patricia Clark awarded a special supplement to Clark's current NIH R01 grant intended to connect a NIH-funded computational PI with a NIH-funded experimental PI. Support is for two years and will involve Rory Carmichael from the NDBL.
- Shawn O'Neil successfully defends his PhD thesis entitled "Non-model Transcriptomics: Applications, Assessments, and Algorithms." Congrats Shawn!
- Josh Livermore joins the Environmental Change Initiative as a postdoctoral fellow working primarily with us and NDBL. Welcome Josh!
