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

The Japanese medaka, Oryzias latipes, is a vertebrate teleost model with a long history of genetic research. A number of unique features and established resources distinguish medaka from other vertebrate model systems. A large number of laboratory strains from different locations are available. Due ...

Abstract

Getah virus (GETV) was first isolated in Malaysia in 1955. Since then, epidemics in horses and pigs caused by GETV have resulted in huge economic losses. At present, GETV has spread across Eurasia and Southeast Asia, including mainland China, Korea, Japan, Mongolia, and Russia. Data show that the...

Abstract

The P-M system of hybrid dysgenesis in Drosophila melanogaster was investigated on the basis of gonadal dysgenesis using 1590 strains from 28 natural populations in Japan, and 20 populations from Southeast Asia, the Pacific area and Africa. Strong P strains were found sporadically in several...

Abstract

An account is given of the dispersal of Chrysomya megacephala from South-East Asia and Australasia to Africa, South America and Japan, as well as of the origins of the synanthropic form of the fly. The phylogeny of the C. megacephala group is discussed, and keys are presented to distinguish species ...
