Nine additional sequences from representatives of different tribes of the family Bovidae were combined with six published artiodactyl sequences to provide orthologous mtDNA for investigation of bovid phylogeny and evolution. Each species was represented by a homologous 2.7-kilobase-pair stretch of mtDNA for the complete 12S and 16S rRNA genes and three(More)
A large body of diverse comparative data now exists for a major phylogenetic synthesis of the higher-level relationships among eutherian (placental) mammals. We present such a phylogenetic synthesis using the composite trees or supertrees from the combined and separate analyses of their published molecular and morphological source phylogenies. Our combined(More)
We obtained 5' and 3' flanking sequences (5.4 kilobase pairs) from the psi eta-globin gene region of the rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) and combined them with available nucleotide data. The completed sequence, representing 10.8 kilobase pairs of contiguous noncoding DNA, was compared to the same orthologous regions available for human (Homo sapiens, as(More)
Building on the experiences of librarian representatives to curriculum committees in the colleges of dentistry, medicine, and nursing, the Health Science Center Libraries (HSCL) Strategic Plan recommended the formation of a Library Liaison Work Group to create a formal Library Liaison Program to serve the six Health Science Center (HSC) colleges and several(More)
OBJECTIVES The paper describes collaborations and partnerships developed between library bioinformatics programs and other bioinformatics-related units at four academic institutions. METHODS A call for information on bioinformatics partnerships was made via email to librarians who have participated in the National Center for Biotechnology Information's(More)
Between 1996 and 2001, the Health Science Center Libraries and Department of Zoology at the University of Florida partnered to provide a cohesive and comprehensive learning experience to undergraduate students in PCB3063, "Genetics." During one semester each year, a librarian worked with up to 120 undergraduates, providing bibliographic and database(More)
QUESTION How can the library-based research project of a genetics course be reinvigorated and made sustainable without sacrificing educational integrity? SETTING The University of Florida's Health Science Center Library provides the case study. METHODS Since 1996, the librarian has codeveloped, supported, and graded all components of the project.
