    Throughout the biological and biomedical sciences there is a growing need for, prescriptive ‘minimum information’ (MI) checklists specifying the key information to include when reporting experimental results are beginning to find favor with experimentalists, analysts, publishers and funders alike. Such checklists aim to ensure that methods, data, analyses and results are described to a level sufficient to support the unambiguous interpretation, sophisticated search, reanalysis and experimental corroboration and reuse of data sets, facilitating the extraction of maximum value from data sets (...)

    A bigger mouse? The rat genome unveiled.John M. Hancock - 2004 - Bioessays 26 (10):1039-1042.
    Rattus norvegicus is an important experimental organism and interesting to evolutionary biologists. The recently published draft rat genome sequence1 provides us with insights into both the rat's evolution and its physiology. We learn more about genome evolution and, in particular, the adaptive significance of gene family expansions and the evolution of rodent genomes, which appears to have decelerated since the divergence of mouse and rat. An important observation is that some regions of genomes, many in noncoding regions, show very high (...)

    Simple sequences and the expanding genome.John M. Hancock - 1996 - Bioessays 18 (5):421-425.
    Recent analysis of the contribution of replication slippage to genome evolution shows that it has played a significant role in all species from eubacteria to humans. The overall level of repetition in genomes is related to genome size and to the degree of repetition that can be measured within individual ribosomai RNA genes, suggesting that the entire genome accepts simple sequences in a concerted manner when its size increases. Although coding sequences accept simple sequences much less readily than non‐coding sequences, (...)
