BACKGROUND A genome-wide assessment of nucleotide diversity in a polyploid species must minimize the inclusion of homoeologous sequences into diversity estimates and reliably allocate individual haplotypes into their respective genomes. The same requirements complicate the development and deployment of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers in(More)
BACKGROUND Granulomatous syndromes, such as Wegener's granulomatosis, are defined according to complex criteria, but the underlying cause is rarely identified. We present evidence for a new aetiology for chronic granulomatous lesions associated with a recessive genetic defect, which is linked to the human leucocyte antigen (HLA) locus. METHODS Five adults(More)

vi SUMMARY Freeze-drying of sediment samples has been shown to be an effective tool for increasing the solids content of the sediments without adversely affecting the non-volatile chemicals of concern within the samples. This technique can be applied to a wide range of matrices, for example plant tissue, where low solids content has the effect of raising(More)

Detailed comparisons of airborne CH 2 O measurements acquired by tunable diode laser absorption spec-troscopy with steady state box model calculations were carried out using data from the 2006 INTEX-B and MILARGO campaign in order to improve our understanding of hydrocarbon oxidation processing. This study includes comparisons over Mexico (including Mexico(More)
We have identified a new gene in Drosophila on the basis of a mutation that affects both behavior and neuronal excitability. This mutation, called bemused (bem) is the result of a P element insertion at cytological position 85D. Flies defective at bem display greatly reduced coordination, flight ability and fertility. The bem mutation also affects synaptic(More)
