Our work on human-specific enhancers of gene expression was recently featured in the Vanderbilt University Reporter!
Update: Our work was also highlighted in ScienceDaily: Fast-Mutating DNA Sequences Shape Early Development; Guided Evolution of Uniquely Human Traits!
Our paper Many human accelerated regions are developmental enhancers was just published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.

Our work was recently featured in the Vanderbilt Reporter’s Pioneers of Discovery series.
Several good things have happened to members of the Capra Lab recently. A few highlights:
Tony gave invited seminars at the Université de Montréal, the University of Kentucky, and the University of Virginia.
Corinne Simonti presented her poster “Examining Disease SNPs for regulatory enhancer potential: What does a non-coding GWAS hit really mean?” at ASHG 2013.
Mike Sivley won a poster prize at the 2013 CHGR Symposium.
Tony helped to organize and spoke at the 2013 CHGR Symposium.
