Abstract A variety of microbial communities and their genes (microbiome) exist throughout the human body, playing fundamental roles in human health(More)
High throughput sequencing has accelerated the determination of genome sequences for thousands of human infectious disease pathogens and dozens of their vectors. The scale and scope of these data are enabling genotype-phenotype association studies to identify genetic determinants of pathogen virulence and drug/insecticide resistance, and phylogenetic(More)
A pan-African consortium, Human Health and Heredity in Africa (H3Africa), was initiated in 2010 to build research programs and infrastructure in genomic medicine on the African continent. 1 A key component of this initiative is making biospecimens and data collected during the initial H3Africa research studies available to external investigators for future(More)
The voltage-sensitive Na+ channel is responsible for the action potential of membrane electrical excitability in neuronal tissue. Three methods were used to demonstrate the presence of neurotoxin-responsive Na+ channels in two hybrid cell lines resulting from the fusion of excitable human neuroblastoma cells with mouse fibroblasts. Only one of the two(More)
