Genome analysis of a major urban malaria vector mosquito, Anopheles stephensi
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2014-01-01)
Background: Anopheles stephensi is the key vector of malaria throughout the Indian subcontinent and Middle East and an emerging model for molecular and genetic studies of mosquito-parasite interactions. The type form of ...
Toxicity of Silver Nanoparticles at the Air-Liquid Interface
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013-01-01)
Silver nanoparticles are one of the most prevalent nanomaterials in consumer products. Some of these products are likely to be aerosolized, making silver nanoparticles a high priority for inhalation toxicity assessment. ...
Transcriptome-wide functional characterization reveals novel relationships among differentially expressed transcripts in developing soybean embryos
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2015-11-14)
Background Transcriptomics reveals the existence of transcripts of different coding potential and strand orientation. Alternative splicing (AS) can yield proteins with altered number and types of functional domains, ...
Nonparametric Bayesian clustering to detect bipolar methylated genomic loci
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2015-01-16)
Assessment of Deep Partial Thickness Burn Treatment with Keratin Biomaterial Hydrogels in a Swine Model
(Hindawi Publishing Corp, 2016-01-01)
Partial thickness burns can advance to full thickness after initial injury due to inadequate tissue perfusion and increased production of inflammatory cytokines, which has been referred to as burn wound progression. In ...
Vindel: a simple pipeline for checking indel redundancy
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2014-11-19)
Background With the advance of next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies, a large number of insertion and deletion (indel) variants have been identified in human populations. Despite much research into variant calling, ...
A Pattern Analysis of Gene Conversion Literature
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2009-11-15)
Gene conversion is an important biological process that involves the transfer of genetic (sequence) information from one gene to another. This can have a variety of effects on an organism, both short-term and long-term and ...
Genome mapping and characterization of the Anopheles gambiae heterochromatin
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2010-08-04)
Background Heterochromatin plays an important role in chromosome function and gene regulation. Despite the availability of polytene chromosomes and genome sequence, the heterochromatin of the major malaria vector Anopheles ...
Organelle_PBA, a pipeline for assembling chloroplast and mitochondrial genomes from PacBio DNA sequencing data
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2017-01-07)
Background The development of long-read sequencing technologies, such as single-molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing by PacBio, has produced a revolution in the sequencing of small genomes. Sequencing organelle genomes ...
Comparative analysis of methods for detecting interacting loci
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2011-07-05)
Background: Interactions among genetic loci are believed to play an important role in disease risk. While many methods have been proposed for detecting such interactions, their relative performance remains largely unclear, ...
