Researchers from the Institute for Molecular and Cell Biology (IBMC) and The Center for Research in Advanced Computer Systems (CRACS) of INESC Porto Associated Laboratory (LA) have joined forces to make history in the evolution of the Theory of Natural Selection. For the first time, the genome of an animal has been sequenced by a team of Portuguese researchers.
The BIP is associated with the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of INESC Porto in the city of Porto. As such, over the following months the “Special” section will visit each R&D Unit and group within the institute. Not just “looking to the past”, the idea is to allow people to get to know INESC Porto LA as it celebrates its 25th Anniversary in Porto, as well as getting to know the new goals and challenges that the next quarter of a century will bring.
In the vertigo of anniversary celebrations, BIP’s tenth seems a lot smaller. But it is just to highlight the composed and notable work performed by this bulletin. In November the bulletin completed 10 years of uninterrupted circulation of what could be the most irreverent series published by a well-known scientific organisation.
