In their October 2021 EMM Editor's Choice, Revollo and colleagues optimized PacBio Single-Molecule, Real-Time (PB SMRT) sequencing (background mutation rate ≤ 1 × 10−7 mutations per base pair) and successfully measure rare substitution mutations in E. coli cultures exposed to EMS and ENU.
At the September 2022 EMGS Council meeting a 10% membership dues increase was approved. This nominal increase will help EMGS to cover a small portion of the increasing expenses for management, website, and other operational expenses.
Of time, space, and linear models—In their April 2022 EMM Editor's Choice, Nwanaji-Enwerem and colleagues attempted to quantify the genomic wear-and-tear effect of being exposed to space radiation. The question the authors asked is: “How much faster do cells age when exposed to space radiation?”
In their March 2022 EMM Editor’s Choice article, Cho et al. present an AOP network that links oxidative damage to induce mutations and chromosomal aberrations.
