The sequence and de novo assembly of the giant panda genome
TLDR
Using next-generation sequencing technology alone, a draft sequence of the giant panda genome is generated and assembled, indicating that its bamboo diet might be more dependent on its gut microbiome than its own genetic composition.
The sequence and de novo assembly of the giant panda genome
TLDR
This corrects the article to show that the Higgs boson genome is a “spatially aggregating ‘spatiotemporal ’ organisation’, rather than a ‘cell-based’ organisation, which is more closely related to the immune system.
Evidence of cellulose metabolism by the giant panda gut microbiome
TLDR
The presence of putative cellulose-digesting microbes, in combination with adaptations related to feeding, physiology, and morphology, show that giant pandas have evolved a number of traits to overcome the anatomical and physiological challenge of digesting a diet high in fibrous matter.
Whole-genome sequencing of giant pandas provides insights into demographic history and local adaptation
TLDR
Evidence indicated that, whereas global changes in climate were the primary drivers of population fluctuation for millions of years, human activities likely underlie recent population divergence and serious decline in pandas.
Use of the nutrients in bamboo by the red panda (Ailurus fulgens)
TLDR
It seems that the red panda has to select high-quality items of bamboo such as tender leaves and shoots that pass through the digestive tract fairly rapidly so as to maximize nutrient intake.
Phylogeny of pikas (Lagomorpha, Ochotona) inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome b sequences
Phylogenetic relationships of 27 species within the genus Ochotona were reconstructed through mitochondrial cytochrome b gene. Maximum parsimony, neighbor-joining and maximum likelihood analysis
HABITAT USE AND SEPARATION BETWEEN THE GIANT PANDA AND THE RED PANDA
TLDR
It is concluded that microhabitat separation contributes to coexistence of giant and red pandas in areas of sympatry.
