A genome-wide survey of genetic variation in gorillas using reduced representation sequencing

PloS One

Aylwyn ScallyChris Tyler-Smith

Abstract

All non-human great apes are endangered in the wild, and it is therefore important to gain an understanding of their demography and genetic diversity. Whole genome assembly projects have provided an invaluable foundation for understanding genetics in all four genera, but to date genetic...read more

Telomere Dysfunction

Telomere dysfunction in response to critical telomere shortening induces dna damage checkpoints that lead to cell cycle arrest and/or cell death.

Immunology - Virus

The immune reactions to nonenveloped viruses are predominantly humoral responses against extracellular viruses, a process that results in lysis and death of the infected cell, and because viral antigens are not present on the cell membrane. In contrast, cell-mediated immunity, together with humoral immune response, plays a major role in the defense against enveloped viral infections.

Conservation Genomics

Conservation genomics aims to preserve the viability of populations and the biodiversity of living organisms through the use of genomic data. Discover the latest research on Conservation Genomics here.

Structure of Centromere Chromatin

Centromeres specify the kinetochore formation sites on individual chromosomes, and are epigenetically marked by the assembly of nucleosomes containing the centromere-specific histone h3 variant, CENPA. Discover the latest research on Structure of Centromere Chromatin here.

Centromere in DNA replication

Centromere identity must be maintained through multiple generations. A new study reveals a Constitutive Centromere-Associated Network (CCAN)-dependent retention of CENP-A, a key epigenetic mark for centromeres, in centromeres during DNA replication and a replication-dependent error correction to eliminate ectopic CENP-A in chromosome arms. Discover the latest research on centromere in DNA replication here.

Structure of Centromere Chromatin (Keystone)

Centromeres specify the kinetochore formation sites on individual chromosomes, and are epigenetically marked by the assembly of nucleosomes containing the centromere-specific histone h3 variant, CENPA. Discover the latest research on the structure of centromere chromatin in this feed.

Ebola Vaccine

The recent ebola outbreak in west Africa has stressed the need for advances in research to develop a vaccine against this deadly virus. Much progress has been made in pre-clinical and clinical studies and future vaccines for the ebola virus look promising. Here is the latest research on ebola vaccines.

Structure of Centromere Chromatin (Keystone)

Centromeres specify the kinetochore formation sites on individual chromosomes, and are epigenetically marked by the assembly of nucleosomes containing the centromere-specific histone h3 variant, CENPA. Discover the latest research on Structure of Centromere Chromatin here.

Centromeres & Kinetochores

The centromere is a specialized DNA sequence of a chromosome that links a pair of sister chromatids. During prophase, specialized regions of the centromeres known as kinetochores attach chromosomes to spindle fibers. Here is the latest research on centromeres and the kinetochore.
