This week we have published a story about non-CpG methylation evolution in the brain in vertebrates and beyond. A link to the open access to the manuscript can be found here:

And also a blogpost comment on how this project started and developed thanks to a great network of collaborators:

This week we've been lucky to have two publications coming out.

Together with Iñaki Ruiz-Trillo we have written a brief review about of animal multicellularity and the origins of embryonic development, focusing on processes observed in unicellular holozoans. See it here (Open Access):

With Ozren Bogdanovic and his team, we have discovered how an actinopterygian-specific Dnmt3b duplicate (Dnmt3ba) has a specific role in maintaining a non-canonical form of cytosine DNA methylation in zebrafish. This is another interesting example on how DNA methyltransferases specialise in transposable element silencing. Open access link here:

Evolution of Dnmt3b gene family in actinopterygians.

The Garvan Institute of Medical Research has made a brief press release where Ozren explains some of the findings:
