Copro-Molecular Identification of Tapeworms in Introduced Invasive Carnivores in Poland
Investigation of the prevalence and diversity of tapeworms in introduced wild carnivores in Poland by identifying cestode species based on copro-DNA analysis, which demonstrated the presence of Mesocestoides litteratus in raccoons and raccoon dogs, and Atriotaenia incisa was for the first time molecularly characterized by using fragments of mt 12S rRNA gene.
ModEst: Accurate estimation of genome size from next generation sequencing data
This work presents a fast, easy‐to‐implement and accurate method to estimate genome size from the number of bases sequenced and the mean sequencing depth, and suggests that both methods yield comparable, interchangeable results.
ModEst - Precise estimation of genome size from NGS data
A fast, easy-to-implement and precise method to estimate genome size from the number of bases sequenced and the mean sequence coverage and it is suggested that both methods yield comparable, interchangeable results.


Population genomics of the raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides) in Denmark: insights into invasion history and population development
The results suggested that the raccoon dog population in Denmark was founded by escapees from genetically unidentified Danish captive stocks, followed by a recent admixture with individuals migrating from neighbouring Germany.
An Annotated Draft Genome for Radix auricularia (Gastropoda, Mollusca)
This draft genome sequence of the pulmonate freshwater snail Radix auricularia is presented and will serve as starting point for further genomic and population genetic research in this scientifically important phylum.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the raccoon dogs (Canidae: Nyctereutes ussurienusis) and intraspecific comparison of three Asian raccoon dogs
The complete mitochondrial genome of the raccoon dog farmed in Northeast China and compared with two previously published mitogenomes will contribute to understanding genetic divergence between raccoon dogs of N. procyonoides in East Asia.
Homogenous Population Genetic Structure of the Non-Native Raccoon Dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides) in Europe as a Result of Rapid Population Expansion
The results presented here are remarkable in the sense that a homogenous genetic cluster inhabiting an area stretching over more than 1500km is identified, which is relevant for disease management, as in the event of a significant rabies outbreak, there is a great risk of a rapid virus spread among raccoon dog populations.
Fragile sites, telomeric DNA sequences, B chromosomes, and DNA content in raccoon dogs, Nyctereutes procyonoides, with comparative notes on foxes, coyote, wolf, and raccoon.
The genomes of these two subspecies of differing chromosome numbers accompanied by B chromosomes are characterized and compared in terms of DNA content by flow cytometry, fragile sites induced by aphidicolin, and telomere sequences using biotinylated DNA probes detected with fluorescence.
Genetic characterization of the raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides),an alien species in the Baltic region
It is suggested that within the next two years, the number of young people participating in the Olympics and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro will increase significantly, with a total of about 40,000 people expected to have taken part.
Sequencing of Supernumerary Chromosomes of Red Fox and Raccoon Dog Confirms a Non-Random Gene Acquisition by B Chromosomes
Comparison of gene ensembles in Bs of canids, ruminants, and rodents once again indicates enrichment with cell-cycle genes, development-related genes, and genes functioning in the neuron synapse, which may indicate importance of these genes for B chromosome establishment.
Genetic Diversity and Population Structure of East Asian Raccoon Dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides): Genetic Features in Central and Marginal Populations
The genetic diversity and geographic structure of raccoon dogs in East Asia has been influenced by natural barriers to gene flow and reveals a typical central-marginal trend in genetic diversity.
Blobology: exploring raw genome data for contaminants, symbionts and parasites using taxon-annotated GC-coverage plots
An approach to extracting, from mixed DNA sequence data, subsets that correspond to single species’ genomes and thus improving genome assembly is presented, and Blobsplorer, a tool that aids exploration and selection of subsets from TAGC-annotated data is presented.
Genome sequence, comparative analysis and haplotype structure of the domestic dog
A high-quality draft genome sequence of the domestic dog is reported, together with a dense map of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) across breeds, to shed light on the structure and evolution of genomes and genes.
