The Phaeodactylum genome reveals the evolutionary history of diatom genomes
Diatoms are photosynthetic secondary endosymbionts found throughout marine and freshwater environments, and are believed to be responsible for around one-fifth of the primary productivity on Earth.Expand

Global trends of whole-genome duplications revealed by the ciliate Paramecium tetraurelia
The duplication of entire genomes has long been recognized as having great potential for evolutionary novelties, but the mechanisms underlying their resolution through gene loss are poorlyExpand

The genome sequence of the model ascomycete fungus Podospora anserina
BackgroundThe dung-inhabiting ascomycete fungus Podospora anserina is a model used to study various aspects of eukaryotic and fungal biology, such as ageing, prions and sexual development.ResultsWeExpand

Plasticity of Animal Genome Architecture Unmasked by Rapid Evolution of a Pelagic Tunicate
Ocean Dweller Sequenced The Tunicates, which include the solitary free-swimming larvaceans that are a major pelagic component of our oceans, are a basal lineage of the chordates. In order toExpand

Genome structure and metabolic features in the red seaweed Chondrus crispus shed light on evolution of the Archaeplastida
Red seaweeds are key components of coastal ecosystems and are economically important as food and as a source of gelling agents, but their genes and genomes have received little attention. Here weExpand

Efficacy of chemotherapy with benznidazole in children in the indeterminate phase of Chagas' disease.
A double-blind, randomized, clinical field trial was designed to test the efficacy and tolerance of a specific drug treatment in children in the indeterminate phase of infection by Trypanosoma cruzi.Expand

Translational control of intron splicing in eukaryotes
Most eukaryotic genes are interrupted by non-coding introns that must be accurately removed from pre-messenger RNAs to produce translatable mRNAs. Splicing is guided locally by short conservedExpand

Chromosome specific markers reveal conserved linkage groups in spite of extensive chromosomal size variation in Trypanosoma cruzi.
The karyotypes of three cloned stocks, CL Brener (CL), CA I/72 (CA) and Sylvio X10/7 (X10), of Trypanosoma cruzi were studied by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis followed by ethidium bromide stainingExpand

The Streamlined Genome of Phytomonas spp. Relative to Human Pathogenic Kinetoplastids Reveals a Parasite Tailored for Plants
Members of the family Trypanosomatidae infect many organisms, including animals, plants and humans. Plant-infecting trypanosomes are grouped under the single genus Phytomonas, failing to reflect theExpand

Digital expression profiling of novel diatom transcripts provides insight into their biological functions
BackgroundDiatoms represent the predominant group of eukaryotic phytoplankton in the oceans and are responsible for around 20% of global photosynthesis. Two whole genome sequences are now available.Expand
