Although cancer rarely acts as an infectious disease, a recently emerged transmissible cancer threatens the persistence of Tasmanian devils (Sarcophilus harrisii). Devil facial tumor disease (DFTD) has swept across nearly the entire species range, causing a population decline of 80 percent in just 20 years. Using high-throughput genomic sequencing approaches, we have detected evidence for rapid […]
