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 ...
Plant breeding of chili peppers ( Capsicum , Solanaceae) - A review.
(Australian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences, v, 10, n. 15, p. 148-154, 2016., 2016)
Medical genetics and genetic counseling in Chile
In the South American Republic of Chile genetic counseling is not currently recognized as an independent clinical discipline, and in general is provided by physicians with training in clinical genetics. At present only one ...
Malaria Molecular Epidemiology: Lessons from the International Centers of Excellence for Malaria Research Network
(American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 2015)
Molecular epidemiology leverages genetic information to study the risk factors that affect the frequency and distribution of malaria cases. This article describes molecular epidemiologic investigations currently being ...
Population genomics studies identify signatures of global dispersal and drug resistance in Plasmodium vivax
(Nature Research, 2016)
Plasmodium vivax is a major public health burden, responsible for the majority of malaria infections outside Africa. We explored the impact of demographic history and selective pressures on the P. vivax genome by sequencing ...
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 ...
Multiethnic GWAS Reveals Polygenic Architecture of Earlobe Attachment
The genetic basis of earlobe attachment has been a matter of debate since the early 20th century, such that geneticists argue both for and against polygenic inheritance. Recent genetic studies have identified a few loci ...
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 ...
A Bayesian approach for constructing genetic maps when markers are miscoded
The advent of molecular markers has created opportunities for a better understanding of quantitative inheritance and for developing novel strategies for genetic improvement of agricultural species, using information on ...
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 ...
