The analysis of the first plant genomes provided unexpected evidence for genome duplication events in species that had previously been considered as true diploids on the basis of their genetics. These polyploidization events may have had important consequences in plant evolution, in particular for species radiation and adaptation and for the modulation of(More)
The generation of sequencing data for the hemiascomycetous yeast random sequence tag project was performed using the procedures established at GENOSCOPE. These procedures include a series of protocols for the sequencing reactions, using infra-red labelled primers, performed on both ends of the plasmid inserts in the same reaction tube, and their analysis on(More)
Chromosome 14 is one of five acrocentric chromosomes in the human genome. These chromosomes are characterized by a heterochromatic short arm that contains essentially ribosomal RNA genes, and a euchromatic long arm in which most, if not all, of the protein-coding genes are located. The finished sequence of human chromosome 14 comprises 87,410,661 base(More)
We report the construction of a tiling path of around 650 clones covering more than 99% of human chromosome 14. Clone overlap information to assemble the map was derived by comparing fully sequenced clones with a database of clone end sequences (sequence tag connector strategy). We selected homogeneously distributed seed points using an auxiliary(More)
Polymers of hyaluronic acid (Hyal) esters exhibit good tissue compatibility and are available in various geometrical configurations. These properties can be exploited for the design of innovative bioartificial liver support devices (BALSDs) using primary hepatocytes. In this paper, we report a preliminary investigation of the polymer feasibility of the(More)
