Two new publications with long-term collaborators

Updated: Dec 6, 2020

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:
