Creation & selection of mutations resistant to a #GeneDrive over mult. generations in the malaria mosquito
http://journals.PLoS.org/plosgenetics/article?id=10.1371/journal.pgen.1007039 Indels created by #NHEJ-based repair of DS breaks give rise to resistance (probably resulting from mis-matches due to
micro-homologies near breakpts)

Long-awaited @Yale STEM report calls for new research institutes
https://YaleDailyNews.com/blog/2018/06/14/long-awaited-stem-report-calls-for-new-research-institutes Top recommendation is a new #DataScience institute! Followed by one for #Neuroscience. Cross-cutting recommendations on grad. student support & sci. cores (https://research.Yale.edu/ussc-report)

Blog post itself has some interesting “text evolution”:

Points from the new University Science Strategy Committee Report :

Under Five Ideas for Top-Priority Investment: (University-wide Institute for) Integrative Data Science and its Mathematical Foundations and Neuroscience, from Molecules to Mind

Under Five Additional Priority Ideas: Computer Science, Conquering Cancer, Precision Medicine, Regenerative Medicine

QT:{{”
Mark Gerstein — a professor of biomedical informatics— similarly emphasized the value of a new data science institute that would integrate Yale’s science campuses and discourage research “silos.” …
Another concern is establishing the specific role of the institute amid the various departments and programs at Yale that perform data science research, Gerstein said. For example, he said, Yale’s new Center for Biomedical Data Science, which Gerstein co-directs, might eventually be folded into the proposed institute.
