The Genetic Diversity of the Americas
(Annual Reviews, 2017)
The history of the Americas involved the encounter of millions of Native Americans, Europeans, and Africans. A variable admixture of these three continental groups has taken place throughout the continent, influenced by ...
Changes Across Development Influence Visible and Cryptic Natural Variation of Drosophila melanogaster Olfactory Response
Relative to an equivalent source of variation that do not present a hidden state, cryptic genetic variation is likely to be an effective source for possible adaptations at times of atypical environmental conditions. In ...
The Simons Genome Diversity Project: 300 genomes from 142 diverse populations
(Nature Research, 2016)
Here we report the Simons Genome Diversity Project data set: high quality genomes from 300 individuals from 142 diverse populations. These genomes include at least 5.8 million base pairs that are not present in the human ...
Phylogenetic relationships among species of the subsection Dendrophlomis Bentham
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2008)
Genetic composition of Chilean aboriginal populations: HLA and other genetic marker variation
Phenotypes and gene frequencies for eight genetic systems are presented for five Chilean Indian tribes. Results agree with the pattern expected for Andean Indians. Genetic distances and dendrograms were obtained separately ...
Changes in Genetic Diversity from Field to Laboratory During Colonization of Anopheles darlingi Root (Diptera: Culicidae)
(American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 2015)
The process of colonizing any arthropod species, including vector mosquitoes, necessarily involves adaptation to laboratory conditions. The adaptation and evolution of colonized mosquito populations needs consideration ...
Genetic variation within and among species of five sections of the genus Arachis L. (Leguminosae) using RAPDs
Some Arachis species are widely used as commercial plants, e.g. the groundnut A. hypogaea, an important source of good quality protein and oil, and A. pintoi and A. glabrata, that are utilized as forage species. Germplasm ...
Internal genetic structure and outcrossing rate in a natural population of Araucaria angustifolia (Bert.) O. Kuntze
The internal genetic structure and outcrossing rate of a population of Araucaria angustifolia (Bert.) O. Kuntze were investigated using 16 allozyme loci. Estimates of the mean number of alleles per loci (1.6), percentage ...
The population genetic structure of Rhizoctonia solani AG-3PT from potato in the Colombian Andes
The soilborne fungus Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis group 3 (AG-3PT) is a globally important potato pathogen. However, little is known about the population genetic processes affecting field populations of R. solani AG-3PT, ...
