Genetic determinants of hair, eye and skin pigmentation in Europeans
Hair, skin and eye colors are highly heritable and visible traits in humans. We carried out a genome-wide association scan for variants associated with hair and eye pigmentation, skin sensitivity toExpand

Refining the impact of TCF7L2 gene variants on type 2 diabetes and adaptive evolution
We recently described an association between risk of type 2diabetes and variants in the transcription factor 7-like 2 gene (TCF7L2; formerly TCF4), with a population attributable risk (PAR) ofExpand

Extensive sharing of chloroplast haplotypes among European birches indicates hybridization among Betula pendula, B. pubescens and B. nana
Extensive sharing of chloroplast haplotypes among the silver birch, Betula pendula Roth., the downy birch, B. pubescens Ehrh., and the dwarf birch, B. nana L., was discovered using polymerase chainExpand

Morphological variation among Betula nana (diploid), B. pubescens (tetraploid) and their triploid hybrids in Iceland.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Introgressive hybridization between two co-existing Betula species in Iceland, diploid dwarf birch B. nana and tetraploid downy birch B. pubescens, has been well documented. TheExpand
