Background selection as baseline for nucleotide variation across the Drosophila genome

PLoS Genetics

Jun 27, 2014

Josep M Comeron

Abstract

The constant removal of deleterious mutations by natural selection causes a reduction in neutral diversity and efficacy of selection at genetically linked sites (a process called Background Selection, BGS). Population genetic studies, however, often ignore BGS effects when investigating...read more

Transposable Elements

Transposable elements (tes) have profound effects on the structure, function and evolution of their host genomes.

Structure and Function of DNA

The double helix structure of DNA is important for its biological function. Discover the latest research on the Structure and Function of DNA here.

Sexual Transmitted Disease

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) includes a series of syndromes caused by pathogens that can be acquired by sexual intercourse or sexual activity. Discover the latest research on Sexually Transmitted Diseases here.

Transposons for Gene Editing

Transposons can replicate and spread through the host’s genome and therefore be used as a genetic tool for analysis of gene function. Discover the latest research on the use of transposons for gene editing 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.

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is a common bacterial infection caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae, a gram-negative diplococcus that is transmitted almost exclusively by sexual contact or perinatally. Here is the latest research.

Telomere Dysfunction

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

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.
