Sex-specific migration patterns in Central Asian populations, revealed by analysis of Y-chromosome short tandem repeats and mtDNA

American Journal of Human Genetics

A Pérez-LezaunJ Bertranpetit

Abstract

Eight Y-linked short-tandem-repeat polymorphisms (DYS19, DYS388, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, and DYS393) were analyzed in four populations of Central Asia, comprising two lowland samples-Uighurs and lowland Kirghiz-and two highland samples-namely, the Kazakhs (altitude 2,...read more

Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Microbiome and MS

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system which is characterized by inflammatory demyelination and neurodegeneration. Here is the latest research on the influence of the human microbiome on this dymyelinating disorder.

GTPases in Intracellular Trafficking

GTPases, including small ras sub-families and large dynamin are regulators of intracellular trafficking. They are implicated in vesicular transport and important for the communication within cells. Discover the latest search on GTPases in intracellular trafficking here.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Coronavirus

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, and 2019-nCov. Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans. Symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, it can lead to death. Here is the latest research on coronaviruses.

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a viral respiratory disease of zoonotic origin caused by the SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV). Initial symptoms are flu-like and may include fever, muscle pain, lethargy symptoms, cough, sore throat, and other nonspecific symptoms. SARS may eventually lead to shortness of breath and pneumonia; either direct viral pneumonia or secondary bacterial pneumonia. DIscover the latest research on SARS here.

Notch-Instructed 3D Cancer Genomes (Keystone)

Cancer genomics employ high-throughput technologies to identify the complete catalog of somatic alterations that characterize the genome, transcriptome and epigenome of cohorts of tumor samples. This feed focuses on Notch-instructed 3D cancer genomes. Discover the latest research here.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
