Of mice, men and immunity…
April 23, 2018
Our first manuscript on evolutionary systems medicine is published in Nature Immunology. A network-based vision of how evolution complicates comparative studies between human and mouse, and what that means for biomedical research. Great collaboration with eminent immunologist and veterinarian Peter Ernst, from UCSD. Check out the publication!

First paper from The Carvunis Lab published in Mol Biol Evol
January 12, 2017
This was a very international project with Diethard Tautz (Germany), Tomislav Domazet-Lošo (Croatia), Mat Alba (Spain) and others. We asked how the technical limitations of BLAST may interfere with our ability to know when sequences have emerged in evolution. Find out more by reading the manuscript here [LINK].
