BORIS: a free, versatile open‐source event‐logging software for video/audio coding and live observations
BORIS is a free, open-source and multiplatform standalone program that allows a user-specific coding environment to be set for a computer-based review of previously recorded videos or live observations.Summary Quantitative aspects of the study of animal and human behaviour are increasingly relevant to test hypotheses and find empirical support for them.

Genome-wide activity of unliganded estrogen receptor-α in breast cancer cells
Significance Estrogen receptor-α (ERα) is a key protein in breast cancer and treatments targeting ERα are among the most widely used and effective in clinics. Although the role of estrogen-stimulatedExpand
CircuitsDB: a database of mixed microRNA/transcription factor feed-forward regulatory circuits in human and mouse
We present a dynamic web-accessible database, CircuitsDB, supporting a genome-wide transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulatory network integration, for the human and mouse genomes, based on bioinformatic sequence-analysis approach. Expand
Effects of Oestrogen on MicroRNA Expression in Hormone-Responsive Breast Cancer Cells
Oestrogen receptor alpha (ERα) is a ligand-dependent transcription factor that mediates oestrogen effects in hormone-responsive cells. Following oestrogenic activation, ERα directly regulates theExpand
The role of Transposable Elements in shaping the combinatorial interaction of Transcription Factors
BackgroundIn the last few years several studies have shown that Transposable Elements (TEs) in the human genome are significantly associated with Transcription Factor Binding Sites (TFBSs) and thatExpand
The Indris Have Got Rhythm! Timing and Pitch Variation of a Primate Song Examined between Sexes and Age Classes
A crucial, common feature of speech and music is that they show non-random structures over time. It is an open question which of the other species share rhythmic abilities with humans, but in mostExpand
Vocal Tract Morphology Determines Species-Specific Features in Vocal Signals of Lemurs (Eulemur)
The source-filter theory describes vocal production as a two-stage process involving the generation of a sound source, with its own spectral structure, which is then filtered by the resonantExpand
Effect of centrally administered neuropeptide Y on hypothalamic and hypophyseal proopiomelanocortin-derived peptides in the rat
In a previous study, we have shown that neuropeptide Y inhibits the release of alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone from the rat hypothalamus in vitro. The aim of the present study was to investigateExpand
Identification and Validation of Suitable Housekeeping Genes for Normalizing Quantitative Real-Time PCR Assays in Injured Peripheral Nerves
Injury to the peripheral nerve induces dramatic changes in terms of cellular composition that are reflected on RNA quality and quantity, making messenger RNA expression analysis very complex. SeveralExpand
Comparative Analysis of the Vocal Repertoire of Eulemur: A Dynamic Time Warping Approach
The diversity of qualitative approaches and analytical methods has often undermined comparative research on primate vocal repertoires. The purpose of the present work is to introduce a quantitativeExpand
