The complete genomes and proteomes of 27 Staphylococcus aureus bacteriophages.
Bacteriophages are the most abundant life forms in the biosphere. They play important roles in bacterial ecology, evolution, adaptation to new environments, and pathogenesis of human bacterialExpand

The Brassica oleracea genome reveals the asymmetrical evolution of polyploid genomes
Polyploidization has provided much genetic variation for plant adaptive evolution, but the mechanisms by which the molecular evolution of polyploid genomes establishes genetic architecture underlyingExpand

Resolving the distinct stages in erythroid differentiation based on dynamic changes in membrane protein expression during erythropoiesis
Erythropoiesis is the process by which nucleated erythroid progenitors proliferate and differentiate to generate, every second, millions of nonnucleated red cells with their unique discoid shape andExpand

Comparative genomic analysis of 18 Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteriophages.
A genomic analysis of 18 P. aeruginosa phages, including nine newly sequenced DNA genomes, indicates a tremendous reservoir of proteome diversity, with 55% of open reading frames (ORFs) being novel.Expand

Calpain in the CNS: From Synaptic Function to Neurotoxicity
The calpains are a class of cellular cysteine proteases that require calcium and are functionally active at neutral pH. Calpain activation can take place in two modes: controlled activation underExpand

Genetic architecture of a morphological shape difference between two Drosophila species.
The size and shape of the posterior lobe of the male genital arch differs dramatically between Drosophila simulans and D. mauritiana. This difference can be quantified with a morphometric descriptorExpand

Pod shattering resistance associated with domestication is mediated by a NAC gene in soybean.
Loss of seed dispersal is a key agronomical trait targeted by ancient human selection and has been regarded as a milestone of crop domestication. In this study, in the legume crop soybean Glycine maxExpand

Towards a standardization of biomethane potential tests.
Production of biogas from different organic materials is a most interesting source of renewable energy. The biomethane potential (BMP) of these materials has to be determined to get insight in designExpand

Isolation and functional characterization of human erythroblasts at distinct stages: implications for understanding of normal and disordered erythropoiesis in vivo.
Terminal erythroid differentiation starts from morphologically recognizable proerythroblasts that proliferate and differentiate to generate red cells. Although this process has been extensivelyExpand

Classification and 3D averaging with missing wedge correction in biological electron tomography.
We solve the alignment problem using the convolution theorem in harmonic analysis, thus eliminating the need for approaches that require exhaustive angular search, and adopt an iterative approach to alignment and classification that does not require the use of external references. Expand
