Human Genomes Shaped by Past Events that Caused Sharp Dips in the Population

Human Genomes Shaped by Past Events that Caused Sharp Dips in the Population

Representation of the impact of a founder event on genetic data with an initial population made of various genomic segments that were inherited identical-by-descent (IBD) from a common ancestor. Following a founder event, the diversity of IBD segments is reduced and due to recombination events, the length of these IBD segments shortens gradually—these two parameters … Read more

New Images Show The Dust in Nearby Galaxies, And You’ve Never Seen Them Like This

When we see pictures of galaxies outside the Milky Way, what we’re usually looking at is primarily the light of their stars. But stars are far from the only ingredient that makes up a galaxy. Think of stars as the chunks of vegetables in the galactic soup. The broth, then, in which they float, is … Read more
