Abstract

The highly repetitive DNA sequence of centromeric heterochromatin is an effective molecular cytogenetic marker for investigating genomic compartmentalization between macrochromosomes and microchromosomes in birds. We isolated four repetitive sequence families of centromeric heterochromatin from...

Abstract

Porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) is a contagious viral disease in pigs, caused by the coronavirus porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV). PEDV infection results in significant mortality in piglets in unvaccinated herds. Like many others RNA viruses, PEDV has high evolutionary rate and is prone to...

Abstract

It has been 55 years since Nikolaas Tinbergen formalized the field of ethology by identifying four types of inquiry that address the "how" and "why" of animal behavior from both a contemporary and historical perspective. This framework has been particularly useful in exploring eusocial behavior...

Abstract

The giant hornet, Vespa mandarinia is a predator of honey bees throughout its range in eastern Asia. The hornets' behaviors are coordinated through pheromones; a marking pheromone is used to mark honey bee nests as a food source, and an alarm pheromone, comprised of three chemical components of...

Abstract

India is the origin to the world's most notorious invasive mammal, the black rat Rattus rattus. All previous empirical phylogeographic studies were based on very few samples originating from India-creating a paucity of data to extrapolate from. In this first specific phylogeographic study of R....
