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)
Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) is the biosynthetic enzyme of the signaling molecule nitric oxide (NO). NO donors have been reported to modulate conductances in cell types throughout the retina, from photoreceptors to ganglion cells. Previously, NOS immunoreactivity has been reported in amacrine cells and cells within the ganglion cell layer. Here, we have(More)
