A gene for a recessive form of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD2A) has been localized to chromosome 15. A physical map of the 7-cM candidate 15q15.1-q21.1 region has been constructed by means of a 10-12-Mb continuum of overlapping YAC clones. New microsatellite markers developed from these YACs were genotyped on large, consanguineous LGMD2A pedigrees(More)
Current knowledge of the microbial diversity and metabolic pathways involved in hydrocarbon degradation in petroleum reservoirs is still limited, mostly due to the difficulty in recovering the complex community from such an extreme environment. Metagenomics is a valuable tool to investigate the genetic and functional diversity of previously uncultured(More)
Background Pinus tecunumanii has displayed good performance in tropical regions of Brazil and showed high potential for commercial exploitation. Embrapa Forestry and its partners own many of the species seed production areas. In spite of its importance, the majority of P. tecunumanii germplasm collections remain still genetically uncharac-terized. Thus(More)
Background The rubber tree [Hevea Braziliensis (Willd. ex Adr. De Juss.) Muell-Arg.] is native from the Amazon region which has great economic importance for being the largest source of natural rubber in the world. Although Brazil is the center of origin and genetic diversity of this culture, the country is currently responsible for only 1% of the world(More)
