Researchers, working with citizen scientists, have positively identified one of the worst known invasive species in Florida, USA.
Visualizing data resulting from high-throughput genome sequencing remains a challenge and a barrier to deeper exploration. A new open source tool, GraPhlAn, aims to help mitigate some of these issues. GraPhlAn is capable of producing compact and publication-quality representations of circular taxonomic and phylogenies with thousands of genomes.
