Slow worms react quickly to climate change

Evolution can go quickly when it has to – at least for small organisms. Researchers exposed a natural setting in Denmark to artificial climate change and discovered that soil just half a degree warmer caused the genome of small worms to change surprisingly quickly.

Model can be trained to guess your height

Postdoc Bjarni Vilhjálmsson and Aarhus University researchers have developed a probability model that can be trained to calculate the impact of genetic variants on our appearance and diseases. Providing accurate indications of our genomes is still a long way off.

The Genome DK HPC HUB supercomputer at Aarhus University was used for a considerable part of the data processing in connection with mapping the Danish genome.

Making it easier to see the difference between defective and healthy genes in Denmark

It will be easier to diagnose genetically determined diseases in Denmark now that researchers at Aarhus University, the University of Copenhagen and the Technical University of Denmark have mapped the first full individual genomes of 30 out of 150 ordinary Danes.
