There aren’t enough characters for us to tell you about all the incredible things that the sourmash package, a command-line tool and Python/Rust library for metagenome analysis and genome comparison using k-mers, does, but we promise that you’re going to want to check out this incredible package from Tessa Pierce-Ward, Titus Brown, and Luiz Irber!

First time as the opponent at a Swedish viva, Tjarno, on speciation and inversions in snails. Memorable field/snail trip yesterday, to Ursholmen islands, helped by gorgeous weather and warm sea. "Viva" v. different from UK equivalent, quite a lot of pros, and few negatives (except the £!).

Some photos from the thesis defence in Tjarno. The stunning weather helped, also a highly entertaining spex afterwards https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spex_(theatre) #genomics

More discussion on that preprint (yes just a preprint and getting Nature commentary!) about when exactly did the gene flow into modern humans happen. Acc to Iasi et al, from 47 Ka for about 6000 years. Interesting here is the 'introgression deserts' with immediate selection against Nean genes for certain areas.

Integrating human endogenous retroviruses into transcriptome-wide association studies highlights novel risk factors for major psychiatric conditions - Nature Communications (www.nature.com)

Snippet: HERVs are “non-coding” sequences comprising of genetic material that originated from the infection of germ cells with ancient retroviruses during evolution, which now constitute approximately 8% of the human genome7,8,9. After the initial infections took place, these sequences inserted in the genome and multiplied...

This was a fun little science ditty about how genomic analysis has revealed the German cockroach is not in fact German, but a canny and adaptable hitchhiker from South Asia who took advantage of human trade routes and wars to travel and thrive around the world.

Just read this, https://www.pnas.org/doi/10.1073/pnas.2317240121, that extraordinary high rate of mtDNA evolution in some plants is associated low mtDNA copy number. Lower Ne is the obvious explanation - but the authors instead put fwd homologous recombination, because it is less effective in low copy number environments. More complicated explanation, with no direct evidence? Thoughts?

If you work on the command-line in Linux a lot, find + exec is your friend.

"I have many copies of MYFILE because my project got sloppy over time. Are they different?"

find . -type f -readable -name "MYFILE*" -exec md5sum {} ;

Also handy for if temporary files get out of control and rm chokes.

find . -type f -readable -name "*.temp" -exec rm {} ;

    Wow, what this company did to these families is so terrible! And the story reflects so horribly on everyone involved in genetics, prenatal testing, private labs, etc.

    I'm grateful for people like the ex-employees who were willing to speak up, and also for CBC for doing this kind of investigation.
