Non random DNA evolution
A model for testing molecular evolution is proposed. Randomness of recurrent mutation is defined based on isotropy and zero convariance among nucleotide sites. Assuming an equal rate of mutation for the bases A, T, G, and ...

Developmental pathways inferred from modularity, morphological integration and fluctuating asymmetry patterns in the human face
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
Facial asymmetries are usually measured and interpreted as proxies to developmental noise. However, analyses focused on its developmental and genetic architecture are scarce. To advance on this topic, studies based on a ...
An Evolutionary Marker of the Ribokinase Superfamily Is Responsible for Zinc-Mediated Regulation of Human Pyridoxal Kinase
The ribokinase superfamily catalyzes the phosphorylation of a vast diversity of substrates, and its members are characterized by the conservation of a common structural fold along with highly conserved sequence motifs ...
Rapid evolution of the Helicobacter pylori AlpA adhesin in a high gastric cancer risk region from Colombia
To be able to survive, Helicobacter pylori must adhere to the gastric epithelial cells of its human host. For this purpose, the bacterium employs an array of adhesins, for example, AlpA. The adhesin AlpA has been proposed ...
Improving code completion with program history
Code completion is a widely used productivity tool. It takes away the burden of remembering and typing the exact names of methods or classes: As a developer starts typing a name, it provides a progressively refined list ...
Early arboreal colonization, postglacial resilience of deciduous Nothofagus forests, and the Southern Westerly Wind influence in central-east Andean Patagonia
(Elsevier Ltd, 2019)
The history and dynamics of deciduous Nothofagus forests along the eastern slopes of the central Patagonian Andes (44°-49°S) remain insufficiently studied and understood, particularly at timescales ranging from centuries ...
JC polyomavirus circulation in one-year surveillance in wastewater in Santiago, Chile
(Elsevier B.V., 2019)
Human polyomavirus JC (JCPyV) is a widely distributed viral agent and because it high resistance against environmental conditions it is frequently recovered from diverse sources of water and is considered a good marker for ...
Molecular evolution of the VacA p55 binding domain of Helicobacter pylori in mestizos from a high gastric cancer region of Colombia
The stomach bacterium Helicobacter pylori is one of the most prevalent pathogens in humans, closely linked with serious diseases such as gastric cancer. The microbe has been associated with its host for more than 100,000 ...
