The yellow-legged hornet, Vespa velutina, was accidentally introduced from Southeast Asia and then invaded France and Korea over the last 10 years. Since its introduction, its predation on honeybee colonies has rapidly become an economic problem in invaded countries. Using mitochondrial cytochrome C oxidase and 22 nuclear microsatellite loci, we showed that(More)
Erythropoietin receptor (EpoR) has been reported to be overexpressed in tumours and has raised safety concerns regarding the use of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) to treat anaemia in cancer patients. To investigate the potential for EpoR to be overexpressed in tumours, we have evaluated human tumours for amplification of the EPOR locus, levels of(More)
We report the characterization of fifteen microsatellite markers in Vespa velutina, an invasive hornet from Asia that has been unintentionally introduced in France before 2005. It is expanding rapidly, covering one third of the French territory and northern Spain, and causes severe losses to honeybee colonies. An enrichment protocol was used to isolate(More)
A ir quality within dairy barns and air emissions from dairy operations, especially larger free-stall dairy facilities, are attracting increased public scrutiny regarding odor and gas emissions. Odors are difficult to quantify because they are subjective and vary between individuals. Gases are better understood and can be more easily quantified. A better(More)
