The Autumn term is at its end and here is a list of the Journal Clubs. Many really interesting papers have been discussed including the interesting papers about (potential) horisontal gene transfer (HGT) in tardigrades. HGT is not as high as 17% as suggested by Boothby et al. (2015) but rather approximately 1% (which is still quite high!) as suggested by Koutsovoulos et al. (2015).
