  • The African Coelecanth genome provides insights into tetrapod evolution 

    Christoffels, Alan; Hesse, Uljana; Gamieldien, Junaid; Panji, Sumir; Picone, Barbara; Van Heusden, Peter (Macmillan Publishers, 2013)
    The discovery of a living coelacanth specimen in 1938 was remarkable, as this lineage of lobe-finned fish was thought to have become extinct 70 million years ago. The modern coelacanth looks remarkably similar to many of ...
  • Hackathons as a means of accelerating scientific discoveries and knowledge transfer 

    Ghouila, Amel; Siwo, Geoffrey Henry; Entfellner, Jean-Baka Domelevo; Panji, Sumir (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2018)
    Scientific research plays a key role in the advancement of human knowledge and pursuit of solutions to important societal challenges. Typically, research occurs within specific institutions where data are generated and ...
  • Taste and odorant receptors of the coelecanth- a gene repertoire in transition 

    Picone, Barbara; Hesse, Uljana; Panji, Sumir; Van Heusden, Peter; Jonas, Mario; Christoffels, Alan (Wiley, 2014)
    G-protein coupled chemosensory receptors (GPCR-CRs) aid in the perception of odors and tastes in vertebrates. So far, six GPCR-CR families have been identified that are conserved in most vertebrate species. Phylogenetic ...
