Comparative analysis of multiple genomes in a phylogenetic framework dramatically improves the precision and sensitivity of evolutionary inference, producing more robust results than single-genome analyses can provide. The genomes of 12 Drosophila species, ten of which are presented here for the first time (sechellia, simulans, yakuba, erecta, ananassae,(More)
Here we report a high-quality draft genome sequence of the domestic dog (Canis familiaris), together with a dense map of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) across breeds. The dog is of particular interest because it provides important evolutionary information and because existing breeds show great phenotypic diversity for morphological, physiological(More)
The majority of strains of Toxoplasma gondii belong to three distinct clonal lines known as types I, II, and III. The outcome of the immune response to infection is influenced by the parasite strain type. The goal of this study was to examine differences in the kinetics of gene expression in microglial cells infected with types I, II, or III of T. gondii.(More)
