New genetic markers were characterized for the broad-snouted caiman (Caiman latirostris) by constructing libraries enriched for microsatellite DNA. Construction and characterization of these libraries are described in the present study. One microsatellite marker was developed from a (ACC-TGG)(n)enriched microsatellite DNA library, and 12 microsatellite(More)
In theory, geographic scale is related to genetic variation at the population level, whereas microgeographic scale may reveal intra-population structure such as social groups and families. In the present work, both levels of genetic variation in the broad-snouted caiman (Caiman latirostris) were evaluated in small wetlands associated with the Piracicaba(More)
In this study, microsatellite markers, developed for Alligator mississipiensis and Caiman latirostris, were used to assess parentage among individuals from the captive colony of Caiman latirostris at the University of São Paulo, in Piracicaba, São Paulo, Brazil. Many of the females in the colony were full siblings, which made maternal identification(More)
Many e-science applications can benefit from the elasticity of resources provided by volunteer and distributed platforms. While the former is based on resources assigned voluntarily by its owners, the second is based on resources specially configured for this purpose. In this paper, we present the integration of BOINC and Hadoop, two of the most popular(More)
