The Genomes of Oryza sativa: A History of Duplications
We report improved whole-genome shotgun sequences for the genomes of indica and japonica rice, both with multimegabase contiguity, or almost 1,000-fold improvement over the drafts of 2002. Tested… Expand
Variants in the Fat Mass–and Obesity-Associated (FTO) Gene Are Not Associated With Obesity in a Chinese Han Population
OBJECTIVE— Recently, genome-wide association studies have provided evidence that several common variants within the fat mass–and obesity-associated (FTO) gene were significantly associated with… Expand
Using FlyAtlas to identify better Drosophila models of human disease
Scallop genome provides insights into evolution of bilaterian karyotype and development
Reconstructing the genomes of bilaterian ancestors is central to our understanding of animal evolution, where knowledge from ancient and/or slow-evolving bilaterian lineages is critical. Here we… Expand
Chemokines and chemokine receptors in inflammation of the nervous system: manifold roles and exquisite regulation
This article focuses on the production of chemokines by resident glial cells of the nervous system. We describe studies in two distinct categories of inflammation within the nervous system:… Expand
Polyamines and their ability to provide environmental stress tolerance to plants
The present review highlights some recent advances regarding the function of polyamines in the environmental stress tolerance of plants. When exposed to adverse environmental stresses, such as salt,… Expand

Mesoporous silica-coated gold nanorods (Au@SiO(2)) are developed as a promising and versatile theranostic platform for cancer treatment. Intracellular localization of Au@SiO(2) is visualized through… Expand
A New Procedure for Detection of Students’ Rapid Guessing Responses Using Response Time
We propose a new nonparametric method for finding response-time thresholds for flagging item responses that result from rapid-guessing behavior. Expand
Elevated retinol-binding protein 4 levels are associated with metabolic syndrome in Chinese people.
CONTEXT High retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) is thought to be associated with insulin resistance in humans. However, evidence from large-scale populations about the relationship between RBP4 and… Expand
