New paper: Odd interactions between short RNAs and structural variation

X’s lab led this study on extensive long-read sequencing of multiple bird genomes and follow-up comparative/functional analysis to find interesting overlap between structural variation hotspots and piRNA hotspots. The evolutionary implications of this overlap has interesting dimensions that touches on deep debates on evolution of evolvability and the maintenance of variation. Regardless, the paper is a wealth of high quality genomic data with cool insights into evolution and functional role of short transcripts in vertebrate genomes. Here is the link for the paper.
