Science and bubble football

Our group retreat this year featured science discussions… and bubble football!

Retreat15

BubbleFootball

Both were a great success, despite the few bruises (from football!) and the pouring rain (which is why it was impossible to take pictures at the pitch). The match has ended in a draw – as a true testament of our team spirit!

CHiCAGO is released!

We are finally ready to release CHiCAGO, our pipeline for Capture HiC analysis. Led by Jonathan, Paula and Mikhail, and a result of two years of work, this package features a new statistical model and a bespoke multiple testing procedure for calling significant interactions in these challenging data. A preprint describing the algorithm in detail will be available in the next few weeks, but the software and documentation are ready to use!

The medaka population genomics paper is out

Mikhail’s paper on the population genetics parameters of wild medaka fish is out in G3. This was part of a large collaboration involving the teams of Ewan Birney at EMBL-EBI, Jochen Wittbrodt and his very talented student Tom Auer at Uni Heidelberg, Felix Loosli in Karlsruhe, and last but not least Kiyoshi Naruse at NIBB (Okasaki, Japan). This work lays the foundation for establishing a population genomics resource in medaka fish (similar to DGRP in Drosophila and 1000 genomes in humans).

Ewan Birney wrote a nice guest blog post on this project at Haldan’s Sieve when we submitted the first preprint of our story to ArXiv.
