Amplification of DNA markers from evolutionarily diverse genomes using single primers of simple-sequence repeats
TLDR
The results showed that tetranucleotide repeat primers were most effective in amplifying polymorphic patterns, which were able to identify individuals of vertebrate species as well as lines or varieties of plants. Expand
Functional and Evolutionary Insights from the Genomes of Three Parasitoid Nasonia Species
TLDR
Key findings include the identification of a functional DNA methylation tool kit; hymenopteran-specific genes including diverse venoms; lateral gene transfers among Pox viruses, Wolbachia, and Nasonia; and the rapid evolution of genes involved in nuclear-mitochondrial interactions that are implicated in speciation. Expand
Chromosomal regions associated with segregation distortion in maize
TLDR
The frequency of occurrence of segregation distortion in maize was assessed, chromosomal regions consistently associated with segregation distortion were identified, and three known gametophytic factors are possible genetic causes of these SDRs. Expand
Genome sequences of the human body louse and its primary endosymbiont provide insights into the permanent parasitic lifestyle
TLDR
The genome sequences of the body louse and its primary bacterial endosymbiont Candidatus Riesia pediculicola are presented, providing a reference for studies of holometabolous insects. Expand
Coordinate repression of regulators of embryonic identity by PICKLE during germination in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
It is proposed that PKL acts as a master regulator of the LEAFY COTYLEDON genes, and that joint derepression of these genes is likely to contribute substantially to expression of embryonic identity in pkl seedlings. Expand
Evidence for inversion polymorphism related to sympatric host race formation in the apple maggot fly, Rhagoletis pomonella.
TLDR
Substantial gametic disequilibrium is found among allozyme and complementary DNA markers encompassing the three chromosomal regions differentiating apple and hawthorn flies, suggesting that genes affecting diapause traits involved in host race formation reside within large complexes of rearranged genes. Expand
The CHD3 Remodeler PICKLE Promotes Trimethylation of Histone H3 Lysine 27*
TLDR
It is found that PKL and GA act in separate pathways to repress expression of seed-specific genes, illuminating a new pathway by which CHD3 remodelers contribute to repression in eukaryotes. Expand
Global Cross-Talk of Genes of the Mosquito Aedes aegypti in Response to Dengue Virus Infection
TLDR
The data revealed extensive transcriptional networks of mosquito genes that are expressed in modular manners in response to DENV infection, and indicated that successfully defending against viral infection requires more elaborate gene networks than hosting the virus. Expand
Genetic basis of heterosis explored by simple sequence repeat markers in a random-mated maize population
TLDR
To determine the level of dominance for quantitative trait loci that underlie heterosis in maize, an F2 population of an elite maize single cross was random mated for three generations in an attempt to break up repulsion linkages that might lead to pseudo-overdominance. Expand
Pinning down loose ends: mapping telomeres and factors affecting their length.
TLDR
The dynamic control over telomere length in maize appears to act rapidly to achieve new genotypically determined telomeres lengths in the F1. Expand
