How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
The evolution of microbial parasites involves the counterplay between natural selection forcing parasites to improve and genetic drifts forcing parasites to lose genes and accumulate deleterious mutations. Here, to understand how this counterplay occurs at the scale of individual macromolecules, we describe cryo-EM structure of ribosomes from Encep...
Despite the rapidly increasing number of organisms with sequenced genomes, there is no existing resource that simultaneously contains information about genome sequences and the optimal growth conditions for a given species. In the absence of such a resource, we cannot immediately sort genomic sequences by growth conditions, making it difficult to s...
The evolution of microbial parasites involves the interplay of two opposing forces. On the one hand, the pressure to survive drives parasites to improve through Darwinian natural selection. On the other, frequent genetic drifts result in genome decay, an evolutionary process in which an ever-increasing burden of deleterious mutations leads to gene...
