Genetic Drift and Indel Mutation in the Evolution of Yeast Mitochondrial Genome Size
Abstract Mitochondrial genomes (mitogenomes) are remarkably diverse in genome size and organization, but the origins of dynamic mitogenome architectures are still poorly understood. For instance, theExpand

Loss of Wolbachia but not Cardinium in the invasive range of the Australian thrips species, Pezothrips kellyanus
Abstract Many insects are associated with maternally inherited bacterial endosymbionts that manipulate host reproduction or impact other aspects of host fitness. Despite their ecologicalExpand

Polyploidy versus endosymbionts in obligately thelytokous thrips
BackgroundThelytoky, the parthenogenetic development of females, has independently evolved in several insect orders yet the study of its mechanisms has so far mostly focussed on haplodiploidExpand

CYP2C19 genetic polymorphism in the Vietnamese population
Abstract Background: Genetic polymorphism of CYP2C19 has been shown to affect enzyme activity and thereby contribute to inter-individual variability in drug metabolism and response. The completeExpand

Variable Spontaneous Mutation and Loss of Heterozygosity among Heterozygous Genomes in Yeast.
Mutation and recombination are the primary sources of genetic variation. To better understand the evolution of genetic variation, it is crucial to comprehensively investigate the processes involvingExpand

Pneumococcal Serotype 5 Colonization Prevalence Among Newly Arrived Unaccompanied Children 1 Year After an Outbreak—Texas, 2015
In 2014, an acute respiratory illness outbreak affected unaccompanied children from Central America entering the United States; 9% of 774 surveyed children were colonized with StreptococcusExpand
An Investigation of the Carriage Rate of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Pigs in the Western Province of Vietnam
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) transmission between pigs and humans can be a dangerous infection source for the community. To control and prevent such disease, MRSA research inExpand
Genetic diversity, reproductive systems and endosymbionts of two invasive thrips species
Background: Thelytoky, the parthenogenetic development of females, has independently evolved in several insect orders yet the study of its mechanisms has so far mostly focussed on haplodiploidExpand
Novel compound heterozygous stop‐gain mutations of LRBA in a Vietnamese patient with Common Variable Immune Deficiency
Lipopolysaccharide‐responsive and beige‐like anchor (LRBA) deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive common variable immunodeficiency (CVID), affecting 1:25,000–1:50,000 people worldwide. BiallelicExpand
