New VC2010 and improved CB4856 genomes published

The VC2010 genome assembly has just been published in Genome Research as an open-access article. This assembly is largely derived from a completely isogenic VC2010-derived strain, PD1074, that is now available from the CGC.

In related news, Junho Lee and his lab have simultaneously published an open-access article on their substantially improved genome assembly for Hawaiian C. elegans (CB4856).

UC Davis features micropublications

microPublication.org publishes brief, novel findings, negative and/or reproduced results, and results which may lack a broader scientific narrative. Each article is peer reviewed and assigned a DOI. Included data is curated and, upon publication, deposited in third party referential databases (when available).

Recently UC Davis featured an article, ‘Small Science Snippets: Micropubs Help Share Discoveries‘ about how one of their researchers used a micropublication to publish their results.
