The orangutan genome is out (probably)
I was just told over email that the orangutan genome paper is out at Nature. Right now, I cannot connect to Nature, though, so I cannot really tell.
We've been involved in the analysis here in Aarhus, applying our CoalHMM methods, and we will have two companion papers out. The first in Genome Research - any minute now, really, it is supposed to come out today - and the second in PLoS Genetics - not sure when, it is in the pipeline but I haven't received a release date yet.
We've received a lot of questions to the Genome Research paper the last couple of days, and I'm busy answering emails right now, but I'll be back and commenting on it here as soon as I have the time.
Update: Ah, Nature is up again, and you can start reading here.
