RT @rohitkolora: Our work on the comparative genomics of Aging in Rockfish is out!!!!! Thanks to the whole group at our lab and awesome col…
Congrats Peter & authors! 🍾🐟
Could not be more thrilled to share this paper in SCIENCE! So honored to have participated in this work! https://t.co/NdLOVzFdXS
Exciting #ExtremeTraitGenomics paper on cover of @ScienceMagazine. Comparing genomes of rockfish species with a shockingly large lifespan range (10 to >200 years!) identified genes involved in insulin signaling and immune-modulating butyrophilins. Congr

This paper looks absolutely brilliant and will go straight to all my classes!
Fantastic story from Peter Sudmant, who I had the pleasure of chatting with way back when for @glimpsepodcast. We touched on longevity a bit, and here his group found a way to explore this phenomenon as no others had done.
Didn't know about the huge variation in life span in rockfishes. 'The evolution of different rockfish life histories is coupled to genetic diversity and reshapes the mutational spectrum driving segregating CpG→TpG variants in long-lived species.' https:
