- The Hipparchia sbordonii transcriptome is done! 21.01.2021Following the RNA extraction from the whole body of a single individual carried out in November 2020, the year 2021 brought as a gift the raw sequencing data of the Ponza grayling. The 300 million reads (150 base pairs each), obtained through a round of paired-end sequencing on an Illumina NovaSeq platform, have … Continue reading The Hipparchia sbordonii transcriptome is done! 21.01.2021
- Sampling in paradise: the Aeolian lizard in Strombolicchio e La Canna 23.12.2020Sampling can be difficult, exhausting, and dangerous, but also rewarding and unforgettable. One of the Endemixit species, the beautiful Aeolian wall lizard (Podarcis raffonei), has a quite nice distribution range. You can find them in some little volcanic islands and rocks in the Aeolian archipelago, about 50 km north of Sicily in the … Continue reading Sampling in paradise: the Aeolian lizard in Strombolicchio e La Canna 23.12.2020
- Looking into the “genetic future”: simulations of a genetic rescue plan 10.12.2020The huge amount of information contained in the genomes of the species we study will allow us to reconstruct their past history and, most importantly, to envisage conservation actions to preserve genetic variability and “genetic health” (for example, avoiding inbreeding depression and genetic load). But can we predict the genetic effects of a … Continue reading Looking into the “genetic future”: simulations of a genetic rescue plan 10.12.2020
- Endemixit is now a project affiliated to the EBP! 6.12.2020EBP is a consortium with the mission of sequencing the DNA (complete genomes) of all life on Earth in 10 years, to protect biodiversity, understanding ecosystems, and benefiting human welfare. Endemixit will contribute, first in Italy and together with other 36 projects around the world, sharing ideas, methods and approaches.
