    • Burst mode pumping: A new mechanism of drinking in mosquitoes 

      Kikuchi, Kenji; Stremler, Mark A.; Chatterjee, Souvick; Lee, Wah-Keat; Mochizuki, Osamu; Socha, John J. (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-03-20)
      Mosquitoes transport liquid foods into the body using two muscular pumps in the head. In normal drinking, these pumps reciprocate in a stereotyped pattern of oscillation, with a high frequency but small stroke volume. Do ...
    • Burst of Young Retrogenes and Independent Retrogene Formation in Mammals 

      Pan, Deng; Zhang, Liqing (PLOS, 2009-03-27)
      Retroposition and retrogenes gain increasing attention as recent studies show that they play an important role in human new gene formation. Here we examined the patterns of retrogene distribution in 8 mammalian genomes ...
