Many companies are offering DNA sequencing for the cannabis field but not all of these companies have scientific staff that have published genomics papers. Do they know how to sequence? This review implies, in some cases they do not. While its a hard genome to sequence, the technique being deployed would be frowned upon even in easier human genomes.

From their diet to their diseases, koalas are pretty special. Now researchers have sequenced the koala’s genome, unlocking the secrets that make these fuzzy fellas so unique. The genome is revealing everything from how koalas cope with munching poisonous eucalyptus leaves, to how they respond to chlamydia infections. The hope is that these insights will not only help us understand these fascinating marsupials, but also aid conservation efforts across Australia.
