Genome fingerprinting by simple sequence repeat (SSR)-anchored polymerase chain reaction amplification.
TLDR
The utility of microsatellite-directed DNA fingerprinting by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of the interrepeat region provides a novel fingerprinting approach applicable for taxonomic and phylogenetic comparisons and as a mapping tool in a wide range of organisms. Expand
Ubiquitous mammalian-wide interspersed repeats (MIRs) are molecular fossils from the mesozoic era
TLDR
An ancient family of repeats, whose sequence divergence and common occurrence among placental mammals, marsupials and monotremes indicate their amplification during the Mesozoic era is presented. Expand
Standardized nomenclature for Alu repeats
TLDR
This paper presents a probabilistic analysis of the H2O2 gene that was constructed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory during the 1990s as well as a comparison study conducted at the University of California at Davis in 2011. Expand
Phylogenetic and familial estimates of mitochondrial substitution rates: study of control region mutations in deep-rooting pedigrees.
TLDR
The results reconcile the controversial rate estimates in the phylogenetic and familial studies; the fast sites prevail in the latter, whereas the slow and moderate sites dominate the phylogenetics-rate estimations. Expand
Translational readthrough potential of natural termination codons in eucaryotes – The impact of RNA sequence
TLDR
Understanding the interplay between these factors provides the necessary background for the efficient application of the STOP codon suppression approach in the therapy of diseases caused by the presence of premature termination codons. Expand
Linkage disequilibrium analysis in young populations: pseudo-vitamin D-deficiency rickets and the founder effect in French Canadians.
TLDR
Analysis of a complex haplotype in linkage disequilibrium with the disease discriminated among distinct founder effects in French Canadian populations in Acadia and in Charlevoix-Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean (Ch-SLSJ), as well as an earlier one in precolonial Europe. Expand
Current genetic methodologies in the identification of disaster victims and in forensic analysis
TLDR
Recent developments are focused on recent developments, which offer particularly promising tools for forensic applications (mRNA analysis, transcriptome variation in individuals/populations and genetic profiling of specific cells separated from mixtures). Expand
Impact of SNPs on methylation readouts by Illumina Infinium HumanMethylation450 BeadChip Array: implications for comparative population studies
TLDR
This study clearly demonstrates that SNP variation existing in the genome, if not accounted for, may lead to false interpretation of the methylation signal differences suggested by some of the Illumina Infinium probes. Expand
Spatial and temporal distribution of the neutral polymorphisms in the last ZFX intron: analysis of the haplotype structure and genealogy.
TLDR
Comparison of spatial and temporal distribution of the ZFX haplotypes suggests that modern humans diverged from the common ancestral stock in the Middle Paleolithic era, separating African groups from populations that colonized Eurasia and the New World. Expand
