Transcriptomics technologies


Transcriptomics has revolutionised our understanding of how genomes are expressed. Over the last three decades, new technologies have redefined what it is possible to investigate, and integration with other omics technologies is giving an increasingly integrated view of the complexities of cellular life. In this Topic Page article, Lowe et al. detail the history and development of transcriptomics technologies.

SteadyCom: Predicting microbial abundances while ensuring community stability

The microbes residing in the human gut, collectively known as the gut microbiota, have an intimate and complicated relationship with human health. In this study, Chan et al. aim to enhance the understanding of the relationship between the gut microbiota composition, the metabolite production, the diet, and the metabolic repertoire of the microbes present using genome-scale metabolic models.

High-order epistasis shapes evolutionary trajectories

A key goal for evolutionary biologists is understanding why one evolutionary trajectory is taken rather than others. This requires understanding how individual mutations determine the accessibility of evolutionary pathways. Sailer and Harms use a robust statistical analysis to reveal interactions between up to five mutations in published datasets.
