Multiple visual pigments, prerequisites for color vision, are found in arthropods, but the evolutionary origin of their diversity remains obscure. In this study, we explore the opsin genes in five distantly related species of Onychophora, using deep transcriptome sequencing and screening approaches. Surprisingly, our data reveal the presence of only one(More)
Nucleopore filter membranes currently utilized to assess RBC "deformability" do not meet the strict metrological requirements of a measuring gauge. They present different kinds of inhomogeneities introducing an useless information (a background noise) into measurement results and expressed as poor reproducibility. Variance reduction can only be achieved by(More)
