Platypus Genome Decoded


The New York Times reports the Platypus Genome has been decoded.

“It was quite a difficult thing,” said Jennifer Marshall Graves of Australian National University in Canberra, who led part of the analysis after the St. Louis team derived the basic sequence.

“The genome was completely unknown, and we knew it was going to be fairly weird,” Graves said. “You’d look at some of these repetitive sequences and think, ‘What on Earth is that?’ “

I know what that’s like. Koffskey’s code is like that.
