Abstract

The western honey bee, Apis mellifera, provides critical pollination services to agricultural crops worldwide. However, despite substantial interest and prior investigation, the early evolution and subsequent diversification of this important pollinator remain uncertain. The primary hypotheses...

Abstract

Small ruminants are important components in the livelihood of millions of households in many parts of the world. The spread of the highly contagious peste des petits ruminants (PPR) disease, which is caused by an RNA virus, PPRV, across Asia and Africa remains a major concern. The present study...

Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis is an important animal pathogen worldwide that parasitizes wild and domesticated vertebrate livestock as well as humans. A comparison of the five M. bovis complete genomes from the United Kingdom, South Korea, Brazil, and the United States revealed four novel large-scale...

Abstract

The genus Physa (=Physella) includes the most abundant and diverse freshwater gastropods native to North America. Due to their invasive nature many species occur throughout the world. The most abundant species, Physa acuta, has been introduced to Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia by human commerce ...

Abstract

All extant equid species are grouped in a single genus - Equus. Among those, ass-like equids have remained particularly unstudied and their phylogenetic relations were poorly understood, most probably because they inhabit extreme environments in remote geographic areas. To gain further insights...

Abstract

Background: Evolutionary histories of aquatic species are often characterized by distinct patterns of genetic variation, which in part reflect drainage evolution. In the present study, the consequences of paleo-environmental changes on patterns of genetic variation of the mitochondrial DNA control...

Abstract

Wild populations of many species are declining as a result of habitat destruction and climate change but also through the over-collection for wild meat and the pet trade. With a long history of trade around the Mediterranean, populations of the spur-thighed tortoise (Testudo graeca graeca) have...

Abstract

Plasmodium falciparum, the agent of human malignant malaria, diverged from Plasmodium reichenowi, the chimpanzee parasite, about the time the human and chimpanzee lineages diverged from each other. The absence of synonymous nucleotide variation at ten loci indicates that the world populations of P. ...

Abstract

The structure of the rDNA repeating unit of A. gambiae was determined by restriction endonuclease mapping and hybridization analyses on 4 independent clones obtained from a genomic library of a colony (G3) from The Gambia. rDNA gene coding sequences are conserved, but much intragenomic and...
