Analyses of pig genomes provide insight into porcine demography and evolution
TLDR
The assembly and analysis of the genome sequence of a female domestic Duroc pig and a comparison with the genomes of wild and domestic pigs from Europe and Asia reveal a deep phylogenetic split between European and Asian wild boars ∼1 million years ago. Expand
Strong signatures of selection in the domestic pig genome
TLDR
W whole-genome resequencing revealed strong signatures of selection at three loci harboring quantitative trait loci that explain a considerable part of one of the most characteristic morphological changes in the domestic pig—the elongation of the back and an increased number of vertebrae. Expand
Effects of retroviruses on host genome function.
TLDR
ERV contributions to host genome structure and function, including their ability to mediate recombination, and physiological effects on the host transcriptome resulting from their integration, expression, and other events are discussed. Expand
Role of APOBEC3 in Genetic Diversity among Endogenous Murine Leukemia Viruses
TLDR
Results for the first time suggest mA3 editing immediately preceding the integration event that led to retroviral endogenization, contributing to inactivation of infectivity. Expand
Use of Endogenous Retroviral Sequences (ERVs) and structural markers for retroviral phylogenetic inference and taxonomy
TLDR
Pol similarities and other structural traits contribute to a better understanding of retroviral phylogeny and are tested in a wider context than before. Expand
Discrepancies between Sexual Desire and Sexual Activity: Gender Differences and Associations with Relationship Satisfaction
TLDR
In both sexes, sexual satisfaction with vaginal intercourse as well as kissing and petting was positively associated with relationship satisfaction, whereas higher desired and actual frequency of masturbation were negatively associated withrelationship satisfaction. Expand
Unsupervised genome-wide recognition of local relationship patterns
TLDR
Saguaro detects distinct cacti describing local phylogenetic relationships without requiring any a priori hypotheses, and successfully demonstrated the software’s utility with two contrasting data sets, one containing many members with short sequences, and the other with few members but complex genomes. Expand
Automated recognition of retroviral sequences in genomic data—RetroTector©
TLDR
A platform independent (Java) program package, RetroTector© (ReTe), that rationally detects and annotates many retroviral sequences, and is not yet tailored for single LTR detection. Expand
The Adult Body: How Age, Gender, and Body Mass Index Are Related to Body Image
TLDR
It was proposed that it is insufficient to merely study how age affects general body image because adults might become more satisfied with some aspects of their bodies as a function of age and less satisfied with other aspects. Expand
Female sexual dysfunction, sexual distress, and compatibility with partner.
TLDR
The findings highlight the importance of addressing partner compatibility for successful treatment and counseling of female sexual dysfunctions and the associations between partner compatibility and female sexual function and sexual distress. Expand
