Professor John Novembre and group are published in Nature Genetics
Professor John Novembre's group have published a paper in Nature Genetics on a novel method for recombination rate inference that was applied to produce a high-resolution recombination map for African Americans. The paper (along with a simultaneous publication in Nature led by groups from Harvard and Oxford) has received press coverage by NPR's Morning Edition, LA Times, Boston Globe, Science News, Atlanta Post, and Jerusalem Post, among other venues. A Nature Genetics News and Views piece in September will cover both papers. The research provides insights into how recombination takes place in admixed individuals and will aid medical genetic studies in African American populations. Postdoctoral fellow Daniel Wegmann was first author on the paper, and graduate student Darren Kessner also contributed to the project.
