Professor Serena Tucci publishes on genome structural variation in human evolution

August 5, 2021

Serena Tucci is a co-author of an invited review article on the role of structural variation in human evolution, published in the prestigious journal Trends in Genetics.  

The article highlights human-specific structural variants involved in changes in the brain, population-specific structural variants that affect response to the environment, including adaptation to diet and infectious diseases, and summarises the contribution of archaic hominin admixture to present-day human structural variation.
