New publication highlights findings from 1,135 A. thaliana genomes

By | News | No Comments

A recent publication in the journal Cell details the findings of the first phase of the 1001 Genomes project, in which researchers sequenced and analyzed the genomes of 1,135 strains of Arabidopsis thaliana. This data has led to discoveries about the evolutionary and migratory history of A. thaliana and creates opportunities for new research about how genes and environment interact. Read about how CRI resources contributed to this study.

CRI’s Tarbell cluster used to unlock mysteries of ancient Himalayan populations

By | News | No Comments

In a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a team of researchers from the University of Chicago and other institutions used genomic analysis to provide new evidence for the prehistoric origins of modern Himalayan populations. Dr. Anna Di Rienzo of the Department of Human Genetics used the CRI’s Tarbell high-performance computing cluster, as well as the Computation Institute’s Beagle supercomputer, to sequence the genomes of eight individuals who lived thousands of years in the past and to analyze them in comparison with those of modern Himalayan dwellers.
