Abstract

Understanding the genetic basis of adaption is a central task in biology. Populations of the honey bee Apis mellifera that inhabit the mountain forests of East Africa differ in behavior and morphology from those inhabiting the surrounding lowland savannahs, which likely reflects adaptation to these ...

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

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) insertions have been detected in the nuclear genome of many eukaryotes. These sequences are pseudogenes originated by horizontal transfer of mtDNA fragments into the nuclear genome, producing nuclear DNA sequences of mitochondrial origin (numt). In this study we determined ...

Abstract

Genome size (C-value) and the percentage of adenine and thymine nucleotides in the genome (AT content) are fundamental characteristics of every species, and very important parameters in molecular cytogenetic and phylogenic studies, and for the progress of whole-genome sequencing. In this study, the ...

Abstract

Escherichia albertii has recently been recognized as an emerging human and bird enteric pathogen. Here, we report the complete chromosome sequence of a clinical isolate of E. albertii strain 1551-2, which may provide information about the pathogenic potential of this new species and the mechanisms...

Abstract

In the last few decades, there have been great efforts to reconstruct the phylogeny of Neoaves based mainly on DNA sequencing. Despite the importance of karyotype data in phylogenetic studies, especially with the advent of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) techniques using different types...

Abstract

We sequenced two strains from the Lactobacillus Firm-5 clade, a dominant group of symbionts in the guts of honey bees and other social bees. The genome of strain wkB8, comprising a 1.93-Mb chromosome and a 6.4-kb plasmid, was fully closed, while strain wkB10 was assembled into 32 contigs. These...

Abstract

Fish have evolved a variety of sex-determining (SD) systems including male heterogamy (XY), female heterogamy (ZW) and environmental SD. Little is known about SD mechanisms of Sebastes rockfishes, a highly speciose genus of importance to evolutionary and conservation biology. Here, we characterize...

Abstract

Here, for the first time, we describe the karyotype of Myiopsitta monachus (Psittacidae, Arini). We found 2n=48, corresponding to the lowest diploid number observed in Neotropical Psittaciformes so far, with an uncommonly large W chromosome homomorphic to the Z. In order to better understand the...

Abstract

We described genome-wide screening and characterization of microsatellites in the swamp eel genome. A total of 99,293 microsatellite loci were identified in the genome with an overall density of 179 microsatellites per megabase of genomic sequences. The dinucleotide microsatellites were the most...
