We have a new cover in Genes!

Cover story: Chondrichthyes (sharks, sawfish, skates, rays and chimaeras) consist a species-rich lineage of cartilaginous fishes and occupy a key position in the phylogeny of vertebrates. We sequenced and annotated the complete mitogenomes of four species of sharks and five species of rays. Subsequently, we analyzed the mitogenomes from public databases and we reconstructed the phylogenetic relations of 172 chondrichthyan species by Maximum Likelihood and Bayesian Inference methods based on the concatenated sequences of the 13 protein-coding mitochondrial genes. The present study expands our knowledge on the systematics and genetic differentiation of Chondrichthyes and contributes to our understanding of their evolutionary history.

Popular Science: Subglacial silicon as another player in global nutrient cycling

As recently published in Nature, methane released from subglacial meltwater is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere. However, it is not only subglacial methane which is responsible for changes in greenhouse gas concentrations. The international team of scientists, in collaboration with three polar ecologists from the Department of Ecology, found that there is another important nutrient influencing atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations, fortunately by the utilization of carbon dioxide. The name of this player is Silicon.
