MicNeSs: genotyping microsatellite loci from a collection of (NGS) reads
TLDR
An algorithm to automatically and efficiently genotype microsatellites from a collection of reads sorted by individual, which can be used to genotype any microsatellite locus from any organism and has been tested on 454 pyrosequencing data of several loci from fruit flies and red deers.
Transformation of the cultivated mushroom,Agaricus bisporus, to hygromycin B resistance
TLDR
Transformation of both a homo- and a heterokaryotic strain of Agaricus bisporus to hygromycin B resistance is described, finding that transformation efficiency was not enhanced by using this homologous promoter.
LTR-Retrotransposons in R. exoculata and Other Crustaceans: The Outstanding Success of GalEa-Like Copia Elements
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis of the Copia retrotransposon scarcity in metazoans compared to Gypsy elements and identify 35 Copia and 46 Gypsy families in 15 and 18 crustacean species, respectively.

Insertion Hot Spots of DIRS1 Retrotransposon and Chromosomal Diversifications among the Antarctic Teleosts Nototheniidae
TLDR
The strong intrafamily TE conservation and wide distribution across species of the whole family suggest an ancestral acquisition with potential secondary losses in some lineages, including the Trematomus, the plunderfishes, and the icefishes.
Multiple independent chromosomal fusions accompanied the radiation of the Antarctic teleost genus Trematomus (Notothenioidei:Nototheniidae)
TLDR
Comparing the timing of acquisition of the fusions in the closely related genera Notothenia and Trematomus of the nototheniid species family, it is concluded that they exhibit distinct chromosomal evolutionary histories, which may be relevant to different speciation scenarios.
Mobilization of retrotransposons as a cause of chromosomal diversification and rapid speciation: the case for the Antarctic teleost genus Trematomus
TLDR
The predominance of DIRS1 in Trematomus species, their transposition mechanism, and their strategic location in “hot spots” of insertion on chromosomes are likely to have facilitated nonhomologous recombination, thereby increasing genomic rearrangements.
