The extension of biology through culture
(2017-07-25) - Journal article,
The transcriptomes of Xiphinema index and Longidorus elongatus suggest independent acquisition of some plant parasitism genes by horizontal gene transfer in early-branching nematodes
(2017-10-23) - Journal article,
Nematodes have evolved the ability to parasitize plants on at least four independent occasions, with plant parasites present in Clades 1, 2, 10 and 12 of the phylum. In the case of Clades 10 and 12, horizontal gene transfer ...
Ancient polymorphisms and divergence hitchhiking contribute to genomic islands of divergence within a poplar species complex
(2018-01-09) - Journal article,
How genome divergence eventually leads to speciation is a topic of prime evolutionary interest. Genomic islands of elevated divergence are frequently reported between diverging lineages, and their size is expected to ...
Recurrent origin of peripheral, coastal (sub)species of Mediterranean Senecio (Asteraceae)
(2017-12) - Journal article,
Background: It is argued that coastal endemic taxa may evolve in parallel at the periphery of the distributional range of a widespread species. Aims: We tested this hypothesis for the origins of three peripheral, coastal ...
If everything is special, is anything special? A response to comments on Bailey et al.
(2018-01-13) - Journal item,
Biology, physiology and gene expression of grasshopper Oedaleus asiaticus exposed to diet stress from plant secondary compounds
(2017-08-17) - Journal article,
We studied the role of plant primary and secondary metabolites in mediating plant-insect interactions by conducting a no-choice single-plant species field experiment to compare the suitability, enzyme activities, and gene ...
Assessment of enzyme inhibition : a review with examples from the development of monoamine oxidase and cholinesterase inhibitory drugs
(2017-07) - Journal item,
The actions of many drugs involve enzyme inhibition. This is exemplified by the inhibitors of monoamine oxidases (MAO) and the cholinsterases (ChE) that have been used for several pharmacological purposes. This review ...
Amphioxus regeneration : evolutionary and biomedical implications
(2017-12-21) - Journal item,
Regeneration is a variable trait in chordates, with some species capable of impressive abilities, and others of only wound healing with scarring. Regenerative capacity has been reported in the literature for 5 species from ...
Reversible polymorphism-aware phylogenetic models and their application to tree inference
(2016-10-21) - Journal article,
We present a reversible Polymorphism-Aware Phylogenetic Model (revPoMo) for species tree estimation from genome-wide data. revPoMo enables the reconstruction of large scale species trees for many within-species samples. ...
Vaccinia virus immunomodulator A46 : a lipid and protein-binding scaffold for sequestering host TIR-domain proteins
(2016-12-14) - Journal article,
Vaccinia virus interferes with early events of the activation pathway of the transcriptional factor NF-kB by binding to numerous host TIR-domain containing adaptor proteins. We have previously determined the X-ray structure ...
