Hypoxia Adaptations in the Grey Wolf (Canis lupus chanco) from Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
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.
Worldwide patterns of genomic variation and admixture in gray wolves
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.
Phylogeny of the macaques (Cercopithecidae: Macaca) based on Alu elements.
MSDB: a user-friendly program for reporting distribution and building databases of microsatellites from genome sequences.
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.
Susceptibility of stored-product beetles on wheat and maize treated with thiamethoxam: effects of concentration, exposure interval, and temperature
Phylogeography of the South China Field Mouse (Apodemus draco) on the Southeastern Tibetan Plateau Reveals High Genetic Diversity and Glacial Refugia
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.
Krait: an ultrafast tool for genome-wide survey of microsatellites and primer design
Krait is a robust and flexible tool for fast investigation of microsatellites in DNA sequences that was seamlessly integrated into Krait so that users can design primer for microsatellite amplification in an efficient way.

It is demonstrated that T. pyogenes was probably the primary pathogen of abscesses in the forest musk deer, and as an animal origin pathogen, the increasing resistance of T.pyogenes isolates could also associate with a decreased virulence.
Effects of host plant and temperature on growth and reproduction of Thrips palmi (Thysanoptera : Thripidae)
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.
Lineage pattern, trans-species polymorphism, and selection pressure among the major lineages of feline Mhc-DRB peptide-binding region
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.
