A Bayesian Assignment Method for Ambiguous Bisulfite Short Reads
DNA methylation is an epigenetic modification critical for normal development and diseases. The determination of genome-wide DNA methylation at single-nucleotide resolution is made possible by sequencing bisulfite treated ...
Gestational Heat Stress Alters Postnatal Offspring Body Composition Indices and Metabolic Parameters in Pigs
The study objectives were to test the hypothesis that heat stress (HS) during gestational development alters postnatal growth, body composition, and biological response to HS conditions in pigs. To investigate this, 14 ...
High-throughput Physical Mapping of Chromosomes using Automated in situ Hybridization
(Journal Of Visualized Experiments, 2012-06-01)
Projects to obtain whole-genome sequences for 10,000 vertebrate species and for 5,000 insect and related arthropod species are expected to take place over the next 5 years. For example, the sequencing of the genomes for ...
Stac3 Is a Novel Regulator of Skeletal Muscle Development in Mice
The goal of this study was to identify novel factors that mediate skeletal muscle development or function. We began the study by searching the gene expression databases for genes that have no known functions but are ...
Interleukin 6 Accelerates Mortality by Promoting the Progression of the Systemic Lupus Erythematosus-Like Disease of BXSB. Yaa Mice
IL6 is a multifunctional cytokine that drives terminal B cell differentiation and secretion of immunoglobulins. IL6 also cooperates with IL21 to promote differentiation of CD4+ T follicular helper cells (TFH). Elevated ...
GPR30 regulates diet-induced adiposity in female mice and adipogenesis in vitro
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-10-04)
Mitotic-Chromosome-Based Physical Mapping of the Culex quinquefasciatus Genome
The genome assembly of southern house mosquito Cx. quinquefasciatus is represented by a high number of supercontigs with no order or orientation on the chromosomes. Although cytogenetic maps for the polytene chromosomes ...
