Earlier this year, the last remaining male northern white rhinoceros died in captivity. But today, researchers hope to help save the species from extinction with the remaining living female at the San Diego Zoo and novel conservation efforts that make use of frozen genetic material. Read more about the study published in Genome Research, “Evaluating recovery potential of the northern white rhinoceros from cryopreserved somatic cells.” Congrats to Jack Baskin School of Engineering authors Benedict Paten, Mark Diekhans, Ian Fiddes, Joel Armstrong, and collaborators Tate Tunstall, Richard Kock, Jiri Vahala, Oliver Ryder, and Cynthia Steiner from the @sandiegozoo, Dvur Krlov Zoo, and the @royalvetcollege

Bill Paseman has two choices for treating his rare and deadly kidney cancer: do nothing or let 200 scientists from around the world analyze his DNA to uncover clues for promising new treatments.

So naturally, 150 computational biologists, geneticists, oncologists, artificial intelligence researchers, and computer developers from top universities gathered to analyze the genomes of Paseman’s kidney tumor.
