Ten tetranucleotide loci were isolated from a New Mexico spadefoot toad (Spea multiplicata) microsatellite-enriched genomic library. To assess the degree of variability in these loci, we genotyped 120 S. multiplicata tadpoles collected from six playa wetlands in the Southern High Plains. Loci revealed a high degree of allelic diversity (4–20 alleles),(More)
Domesticated animals quickly evolve docile and submissive behaviors after isolation from their wild conspecifics. Model organisms reared for prolonged periods in the laboratory also exhibit similar shifts towards these domesticated behaviors. Yet whether this divergence is due to inadvertent selection in the lab or the fixation of deleterious mutations(More)
Transmission-blocking (TB) vaccines are considered an important tool for malaria control and elimination. Among all the antigens characterized as TB vaccines against Plasmodium vivax, the ookinete surface proteins Pvs28 and Pvs25 are leading candidates. These proteins likely originated by a gene duplication event that took place before the radiation of the(More)
With arguably the best finished and expertly annotated genome assembly, Drosophila melanogaster is a formidable genetics model to study all aspects of biology. Nearly a decade ago, the 12 Drosophila genomes project expanded D. melanogaster's breadth as a comparative model through the community-development of an unprecedented genus- and genome-wide(More)
Behavior, while complex and dynamic, is among the most diverse, derived, and rapidly evolving traits in animals. The highly labile nature of heritable behavioral change is observed in such evolutionary phenomena as the emergence of converged behaviors in domesticated animals, the rapid evolution of preferences, and the routine development of ethological(More)
Nine normal bone marrow donors aged 7-166 months (median 69 months) received autologous red cells which had been removed from their marrow harvest after collection. The median volume of marrow removed from the donors was 18.6 ml/kg which was equivalent to a median blood volume loss of 23.3%. Three infant donors were transfused with autologous red blood(More)
A simple and reliable technique for removal of ABO incompatible marrow red cells is described. This method requires a blood cell processor and third party red cells are used as a shelf. Using this technique, nine children age 0.5-11.5 years received allogeneic bone marrow transplantation from ABO incompatible donors. A median of 4.8 ml of incompatible red(More)
The reliability of a phylogenetic tree obtained from empirical data is usually measured by the bootstrap probability (Pb) of interior branches of the tree. If the bootstrap probability is high for most branches, the tree is considered to be reliable. If some interior branches show relatively low bootstrap probabilities, we are not sure that the inferred(More)
