We resequenced 876 short fragments in a sample of 96 individuals of Arabidopsis thaliana that included stock center accessions as well as a hierarchical sample from natural populations. Although A. thaliana is a selfing weed, the pattern of polymorphism in general agrees with what is expected for a widely distributed, sexually reproducing species. Linkage(More)
Using genetic markers, we tracked the sex ratio behavior of individual females of the parasitic wasp, Nasonia vitripennis, in foundress groups of size 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16. Comparison of 12 isofemale strains extracted from a natural population reveals significant between-strain heterogeneity of sex ratios produced in all sizes of foundress group. Under simple(More)
We detected significant parent-offspring regressions for the first sex ratio (the sex ratio produced by a female in a fresh host) and the second sex ratio (the sex ratio produced by a female in a previously parasitized host) in the parasitic wasp, Nasonia vitripennis. For both traits, estimates of the narrow-sense heritability range from approximately 0.05(More)
In the trypsin-mediated semisynthetic transformation of pig insulin into an ester of insulin of human sequence, the B30 alanine residue of the pig hormone is replaced by an ester of threonine. The mechanism of this reaction was investigated by carrying out the transformation in a medium containing water enriched with 18O. Subsequent analysis by combined(More)
