Genomewide association study of leprosy.
TLDR
Variants of genes in the NOD2-mediated signaling pathway (which regulates the innate immune response) are associated with susceptibility to infection with M. leprae.
Pleistocene isolation in the Northwestern Pacific marginal seas and limited dispersal in a marine fish, Chelon haematocheilus (Temminck & Schlegel, 1845)
TLDR
Results indicate that gene flow in Chelon haematocheilus is far more restricted spatially than predicted by the potential dispersal capabilities of this species, and the lack of phylogeographical structure in East China Sea may reflect a recent range expansion after the last glacial maximum and insufficient time to attain migration‐drift equilibrium.
Effects of Pleistocene climatic fluctuations on the phylogeographic and demographic histories of Pacific herring (Clupea pallasii)
TLDR
The genetic make‐up of extant populations of C. pallasii was shaped by Pleistocene environmental impacts on the historical demography of this species, resulting in a deep genealogical split that cleanly distinguishes populations in the western vs. eastern North Pacific.
StructureSelector: A web‐based software to select and visualize the optimal number of clusters using multiple methods
TLDR
A web‐based user‐friendly software structureselector is developed to calculate the four appealing alternative statistics together with the commonly used Ln Pr(X|K) and ΔK statistics.
Multiple mating and clutch size in invertebrate brooders versus pregnant vertebrates
TLDR
In embryo-gestating animals otherwise as different as mammals and mollusks, polygamy rates and histograms of successful mates per brooder proved to be strikingly similar, and no significant correlation in invertebrates between brood size and genetically deduced rates of multiple mating by the incubating sex was uncovered.
On the temporal inconsistencies of Linnean taxonomic ranks
TLDR
The findings empirically confirm that currently recognized taxa are far from temporally standardized, thereby adding support for the contention that this kind of taxonomic inconsistency should ultimately be rectified in the authors' biological classifications.
Population Genetic Structure and Demographic History of Atrina pectinata Based on Mitochondrial DNA and Microsatellite Markers
TLDR
It is concluded that both historical recolonization and current gene flow were responsible for the weak level of genetic structure detected in A. pectinata.
Development and preliminary evaluation of a genomewide single nucleotide polymorphisms resource generated by RAD‐seq for the small yellow croaker (Larimichthys polyactis)
TLDR
The generated SNP resources in this study provided a valuable tool for future population genetics and genomics studies of L. polyactis and offered a chance to evaluate potential adaptive divergence.
