Detecting lateral gene transfers by statistical reconciliation of phylogenetic forests

BMC Bioinformatics

Abstract

To understand the evolutionary role of Lateral Gene Transfer (LGT), accurate methods are needed to identify transferred genes and infer their timing of acquisition. Phylogenetic methods are particularly promising for this purpose, but the reconciliation of a gene tree with a reference (...read more

Tuberous Sclerosis

Tuberous Sclerosis (TSC) is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder caused by mutations in TSC1 or TSC2 tumor suppressor genes and characterized by the development of benign hamartomas in multiple organs. Here is the latest research.

Movement Disorders

Movement disorders are a group of nervous system disorders that increase or decrease voluntary or involuntary movements. Here is the latest research on genetic and environmental factors, as well as mechanisms that underlie movement disorders.

Neurocutaneous Syndromes (MDS)

Neurocutaneous syndromes include congenital disorders involving tumor growth in the brain, spinal cord, organs, skin, and bones. These syndromes include tuberous sclerosis, neurofibromatosis, and Sturge-Weber disease. Find the latest research on neurocutaneous syndromes here.

Tourette Syndrome

Tourette Syndrome is a neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by multiple motor and vocal tics and often associated with neurobehavioral comorbidities, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder. Here is the latest research on this childhood-onset neurodevelopmental disorder.

Archaeogenetics

Recent advances in genomic sequencing has led to the discovery of new strains of Archaea and shed light on their evolutionary history. Discover the latest research on Archaeogenetics here.
