The number of women climbing the career ladder in science remains “disappointingly low”, says a study.
An approach to estimate the contribution of all alleles to phenotypic variation is applied to transcription regulation using whole-genome sequencing and transcriptome data. Ultrarare variants contribute approximately 46% of cis heritability across genes.
A machine learning model allows the identification of new small-molecule kinase inhibitors in days.
A new method for inferring genealogical histories from large-scale genetic data is used to characterize population structure using data from the 1000 Genomes Project, the UK Biobank and the Simons Genome Diversity Project.
Deaths of prominent life scientists tend to be followed by a surge in highly cited research by newcomers.

A group of independent biologists say they plan to copy a costly gene therapy. Are they medicine’s Robin Hood or a threat to safety?
Although many scientists agree that excessive self-citation is a problem, there is little consensus on how much is too much or on what to do about the issue. In part this is because researchers have many legitimate reasons to cite their own work or that of colleagues.
