Abstract

High quality circular genome sequences were generated for the Clostridium chauvoei type strain DSM 7528T (ATCC 10092T) and a field strain 12S0467 isolated in Germany. Comparative genome analysis of the two strains revealed few inversions and translocations in local collinear blocks, indicating a...

Abstract

Sudden death was observed in chimpanzees and gorillas in Côte d'Ivoire (Taï National Park) and Cameroon (Dja Reserve) in 2001 and 2004 and the causative agent was identified as a before unknown Bacillus anthracis-like bacterium designated Bacillus cereus biovar anthracis (Bcbva) (1, 2). Bcbva...

Abstract

Long-term effects of developmental diet on adult life history traits and health have been identified across a range of organisms, including humans. However, there has been considerable debate about the adaptive significance of such effects and the mechanisms responsible. In particular, we still...

Abstract

The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus, family: Felidae order: Carnivora) was once widely distributed across Africa and Asia but has been extirpated from a large portion of this area. Major threats are considered to be habitat loss and fragmentation, competition with other carnivore species, their killing...

Abstract

The diversity of life on earth owes its existence to the process of speciation. The concept of speciation is primordial for evolutionary biologists because it provides a framework to understand how contemporary biodiversity came to be. Moreover, not only natural phenomena can result in the...

Abstract

The preservation of wild Brazilian species is based on knowledge, distribution, behavior both in the natural environment and in captivity, therefore, there is a great importance in the case of reproductive description of the species studied always aiming the perpetuation. This study has focused on...

Abstract

The adaptation of bats to different environments has resulted in the evolution of unique phenotypic and genotypic characteristics such as flight, echolocation and highly specialized diets. Bats have also been increasingly recognized as reservoirs for viruses which can cross species barriers. Among...

Abstract

Marek's disease virus (MDV) is a highly oncogenic alphaherpesvirus that causes Marek's disease (MD) in chickens. Infection of susceptible birds with virulent strain results in economic loss due to a high mortality, visceral lymphomas, paralysis and immunosuppression. The MDV genome encodes a CXC...
