UNLABELLED Genome Wide Association Studies between molecular markers and phenotypes are now routinely run in model and non-model species. However, tools to estimate the probability of association of functional units (e.g. genes) containing multiple markers are not developed for species other than humans. Here we introduce MUGBAS (MUlti species Gene-Based(More)
We assessed the gut microbial ecology of 11 severely obese patients before and after bilio-intestinal bypass (BIB). Fecal samples were evaluated for microbial communities using 16S rDNA Illumina sequencing, real-time PCR targeting functional genes, and gas chromatography of short chain fatty acids (SCFAs). At 6 months after surgery, subjects exhibited(More)
East Coast Fever (ECF) is a major livestock disease caused by Theileria parva Theiler, 1904, an emo-parasite protozoan transmitted by the tick Rhipicephalus appendiculatus Neumann, 1901. This disease provokes high mortality in cattle populations of East and Central Africa, especially in exotic breeds and crossbreds (Olwoch et al., 2008). Here, we use(More)
