The four principal investigators for the award are affiliated with the University of California at Santa Barbara (Russell Schmitt and Sally ...

Mapping the evolution of a virus

...p, we tested its reliability by making hundreds of predictions of how well certain strains might match up and then conducting laboratory tests to check the predictions. It's very gratifying that this basic research also has practical application to an important human pathogen, influenza." Experts estimate that ...

Carnivore species are predicted to be at increased extinction risk from human population growth

...h that on human population densities yields better predictions of extinction risk than either set of data can alone. For example, a species with a long gestation period that lives close to densely populated human areas are at greater risk than species with similar gestation periods that live near sparsely popula...

We believe it's a good way to complete the annotation of a genome." The approach stands traditional genome annota...
