Abstract

In species with separate sexes, antagonistic selection on males and females (intralocus sexual conflict) can result in a gender load that can be resolved through the evolution of sexual dimorphism. We present data on intralocus sexual conflict over immune defense in a natural population...read more

Human Immune Variation: Genetics, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

Genomic Imprinting

Genomic imprinting is an epigenetically regulated process whereby genes are selectively silenced based on their parent-of-origin, leading to monoallelic expression. Discover the latest research on genomic imprinting here.

Tetanus (ASM)

Tetanus is a condition caused by the bacteria Clostridium tetani. The toxin impairs the function of motor neurons, leading to muscle spasms and tightness. Discover the latest research on Tetanus here.

Microbial ecology, genetics and evolution

Microbes are microscopic organisms which may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.

Immune System in Humans: Tissues & Ages

Mapping the human immune system spatially, within and between tissues, will provide the basis for studying mechanisms of tissue residency and the effects of aging. Find new research on analysis of the immune system by multiple approaches here.
