Worldwide patterns of genomic variation and admixture in gray wolves.
TLDR
No single wolf population is more closely related to dogs, supporting the hypothesis that dogs were derived from an extinct wolf population, and extensive admixture between dogs and wolves is found, with up to 25% of Eurasian wolf genomes showing signs of dog ancestry. Expand
Hypoxia Adaptations in the Grey Wolf (Canis lupus chanco) from Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
TLDR
It is found that, beginning about 55,000 years ago, the highland Tibetan grey wolf suffered a more substantial population decline than lowland wolves, which suggests similar evolutionary constraints on natural selection in wolves and humans of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Expand
Phylogeography of the South China Field Mouse (Apodemus draco) on the Southeastern Tibetan Plateau Reveals High Genetic Diversity and Glacial Refugia
TLDR
This study supported the hypothesis that the SEMTP was a large late Pleistocene refugium, and further inferred that the Gongga Mountain Region and Hongya County were glacial refugia for A. draco. Expand
MSDB: a user-friendly program for reporting distribution and building databases of microsatellites from genome sequences.
TLDR
MSDB is a new Perl program providing a user-friendly interface for identification and building databases of microsatellites from complete genome sequences and is powerful in finding various types of pure, compound, and complex microsatelliteites from sequences. Expand
Susceptibility of stored-product beetles on wheat and maize treated with thiamethoxam: effects of concentration, exposure interval, and temperature
TLDR
Results show that thiamethoxam would be an effective protectant of stored maize seed and stored wheat seed and that T. castaneum in untreated maize and untreated wheat was very low compared with the other species. Expand
Phylogeny of the macaques (Cercopithecidae: Macaca) based on Alu elements.
TLDR
The present study illustrates that SINE-based approaches are a powerful tool in primate phylogenetic studies and can be used to successfully resolve evolutionary relationships between taxa at scales from the ordinal level to closely related species within one genus. Expand
Effects of host plant and temperature on growth and reproduction of Thrips palmi (Thysanoptera : Thripidae)
TLDR
Information needed to understand population dynamics of thrips in important vegetable crops is provided, information which will be valuable in developing and evaluating cultural and biological controls for this extremely damaging pest. Expand
Lineage pattern, trans-species polymorphism, and selection pressure among the major lineages of feline Mhc-DRB peptide-binding region
TLDR
Signatures of trans-species polymorphism among major allelic lineages indicate that balancing selection has maintained the MHC polymorphism for a long evolutionary time and increased the understanding of the nature of selective forces acting on DRB during feline radiation. Expand
Specifying and Sustaining Pigmentation Patterns in Domestic and Wild Cats
TLDR
A two-stage model in which Taqpep helps to establish a periodic pre-pattern during skin development that is later implemented by differential expression of Edn3 is proposed, which support a common model for coat and pigment pattern formation in domestic and wild cats. Expand
Population genetic diversity of Prenant’s schizothoracin, Schizothorax prenanti, inferred from the mitochondrial DNA control region
TLDR
Estimates of gene flow indicated reproductive isolation between Muli and the other populations, and this divergence might be related to geographical location and also suggested considerable genetic diversity of the populations in the Muli, Dadu, and Qingyi rivers. Expand
