Rogue chromosome may be behind new contagious cancer striking Tasmanian devils | Science | AAAS

"Having two of these unusual tumors arise in such a short space of time really concerns me," says study leader Janine Deakin, a geneticist at the University of Canberra.
The second cancer started showing up in 2014, when Tasmanian researchers discovered five Tasmanian devils with facial tumors. Like the first cancer, the tumors grew so large that they prevented the animals from eating. And, like the first, the cancer spread from animal to animal, as the devils bit and kicked each other during frequent confrontations. To find out whether the second cancer was related to the first, Deakin and colleagues performed a genetic analysis. "It does seem that the shorter telomere may have something to do with the transmissible tumors," says Deakin, as such premature shortening may make chromosomes prone to merging. "It is hard to understand why such a weird feature would persist or would have evolved in the first place," Deakin says.


Digital reconstruction of ancient chromosomes reveals surprises about mammalian evolution | Science | AAAS

The work "helps us to understand how chromosomes have changed over time, which chromosome rearrangements may have led to the formation of new species, and what might be driving chromosomal rearrangements," says Janine Deakin, a geneticist at the University of Canberra who was not involved with the work.
"I find the stability of some of the ancestral chromosomes remarkable," Deakin says. "I'm looking forward to seeing this analysis expanded to include a detailed look at all mammals," Deakin says.
