The invasion of the giant Madagascar day gecko Phelsuma grandis has increased the threats to the four endemic Mauritian day geckos (Phelsuma spp.) that have survived on mainland Mauritius. We had two main aims: (i) to predict the spatial distribution and overlap of P. grandis and the endemic geckos at a landscape level; and (ii) to investigate the effects(More)
DNA damage and replication checkpoints mediated by the ATR-CHEK1 pathway are key to the maintenance of genome stability, and both ATR and CHEK1 have been proposed as potential breast cancer susceptibility genes. Many novel variants recently identified by the large resequencing projects have not yet been thoroughly tested in genome-wide association studies(More)
Research on auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs) indicates that AVH schizophrenia patients show greater abnormalities on tasks requiring recognition of affective prosody (AP) than non-AVH patients. Detecting AP requires accurate perception of manipulations in pitch, amplitude and duration. Schizophrenia patients with AVHs also experience difficulty(More)
Bright-red colors in vertebrates are commonly involved in sexual, social, and interspecific signaling [1-8] and are largely produced by ketocarotenoid pigments. In land birds, ketocarotenoids such as astaxanthin are usually metabolically derived via ketolation of dietary yellow carotenoids [9, 10]. However, the molecular basis of this gene-environment(More)
Social networks have become an integral part of our society, and for good reason, which make it easier for people to keep in touch with their friends and family, while also generating new and interesting social data. However, the incredible volume of personal information exposed by these networks has some potentially severe social consequences. First, in(More)
Stop signs are a part of everyday traffic for drivers around the world. However, due to their smaller size, lack of lighting and the fact that they can become visually obscured from the road, stop signs have a tendency to be much less effective than traffic lights. To solve this problem, we developed an Android application: Stop Watcher, which is designed(More)
