We performed a whole genome microsatellite marker scan in six multiplex families with bipolar (BP) mood disorder ascertained in Antioquia, a historically isolated population from North West Colombia. These families were characterized clinically using the approach employed in independent ongoing studies of BP in the closely related population of the Central(More)
The spectacular progress in genomics increasingly highlights the importance of comparative biology in biomedical research. In particular, nonhuman primates, as model systems, provide a crucial intermediate between humans and mice. The close similarities between humans and other primates are stimulating primate studies in virtually every area of biomedical(More)
Ahmedabad, India’s sixth largest city, saw widespread religious violence in 2002. Using detailed neighborhood level data we show that riot incidence is positively predicted by a neighborhood’s proximity to the, by now largely derelict, textile mills. Mill neighborhoods also exhibit higher levels of religious integration, a fact we trace to the historical(More)
Monocyte and macrophage Fc. receptors are important components in the recognition of IgG-coated cells and lgG-containing immune complexes. Two proteins have been identified on human peripheral blood monocytes that can function as Fc. receptors. Fc7Rl (70 Kd) and Fc. Rll (40 Kd). We studied the role of Fc.,RI and Fc.,RII on human monocytes by examining their(More)
MOTIVATION Cellular processes are controlled, directly or indirectly, by the binding of hundreds of different DNA binding factors (DBFs) to the genome. One key to deeper understanding of the cell is discovering where, when and how strongly these DBFs bind to the DNA sequence. Direct measurement of DBF binding sites (BSs; e.g. through ChIP-Chip or ChIP-Seq(More)
