  • Moreno Estrada, Andrés; Aparicio Prat, Estel; Sikora, Martin; Engelken, Johannes; Ramírez Soriano, Anna; Calafell i Majó, Francesc; Bosch Fusté, Elena (BioMed Central, 2010)
    Background: The human FOXI1 gene codes for a transcription factor involved in the physiology of the inner ear, testis, and kidney. Using three interspecies comparisons, it has been suggested that this may be a gene ...
  • Sikora, Martin; Laayouni, Hafid; Calafell i Majó, Francesc; Comas, David; Bertranpetit, Jaume (Nature Publishing Group, 2011)
    Studies of large sets of SNP data have proven to be a powerful tool in the analysis of the genetic structure of human populations. In this work, we analyze genotyping data for 2,841 SNPs in 12 Sub-Saharan African populations, ...
  • Bosch Fusté, Elena; Laayouni, Hafid; Morcillo Suárez, Carlos; Casals López, Ferran; Moreno Estrada, Andrés; Ferrer Admetlla, Anna; Gardner, Michelle; Rosa, Araceli; Comas, David; Graffelman, Jan; Calafell i Majó, Francesc; Bertranpetit, Jaume (BioMed Central, 2009)
    Background: It is well known that the pattern of linkage disequilibrium varies between human populations, with remarkable geographical stratification. Indirect association studies routinely exploit linkage disequilibrium ...
  • Mendizábal Eceizabarrena, Isabel, 1981-; Sandoval Mendoza, Karla; Berniell Lee, Gemma; Calafell i Majó, Francesc; Salas, Antonio; Martínez Fuentes, Antonio; Comas, David (BioMed Central, 2008)
    Background: Before the arrival of Europeans to Cuba, the island was inhabited by two Native American groups, the Tainos and the Ciboneys. Most of the present archaeological, linguistic and ancient DNA evidence indicates a ...
  • Kalaydjieva, Luba; Gresham, David; Calafell i Majó, Francesc (BioMed Central, 2001)
    Background: Data provided by the social sciences as well as genetic research suggest that the 8-10 million Roma (Gypsies) who live in Europe today are best described as a conglomerate of genetically isolated founder ...
  • Moreno Estrada, Andrés; Bosch Fusté, Elena; Stoneking, Mark; Bertranpetit, Jaume; Calafell i Majó, Francesc; Navarro i Cuartiellas, Arcadi, 1969-; Casals López, Ferran; Tang, Kun; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975-; Sikora, Martin (Oxford University Press, 2009)
    Different signatures of natural selection persist over varying time scales in our genome, revealing possible episodes of adaptative evolution during human history. Here, we identify genes showing signatures of ancestral ...
  • Sandoval Mendoza, Karla; Buentello Malo, Leonor; Peñaloza Espinosa, Rosenda; Avelino, Heriberto; Salas, Antonio; Calafell i Majó, Francesc; Comas, David (Springer, 2009)
    Mesoamerica, defined as the broad linguistic and cultural area from middle southern Mexico to Costa Rica, might have played a pivotal role during the colonization of the American continent. It has been suggested that the ...
  • Parida, Laxmi; Javed, Asif; Melé Messeguer, Marta, 1982-; Calafell i Majó, Francesc; Bertranpetit, Jaume; Genographic Consortium (BioMed Central, 2009)
    Background: We address the problem of studying recombinational variations in (human) populations. In this paper, our focus is on one computational aspect of the general task: Given two networks G1 and G2, with both mutation ...
  • Marigorta, Urko M.; Lao Grueso, Oscar; Casals López, Ferran; Calafell i Majó, Francesc; Morcillo Suárez, Carlos; Faria, Rui; Bosch Fusté, Elena; Serra, François; Bertranpetit, Jaume; Dopazo, Hernán; Navarro i Cuartiellas, Arcadi, 1969- (BioMed Central, 2011)
    Background: Searching for associations between genetic variants and complex diseases has been a very active area of research for over two decades. More than 51,000 potential associations have been studied and published, a ...
  • Moreno Estrada, Andrés (Oxford University Press, 2008)
    The human olfactory receptor repertoire is reduced in comparison to other mammals and to other non-human primates. Nonetheless, this olfactory decline opens an opportunity for evolutionary innovation and improvement. In ...
  • Sandoval Mendoza, Karla; Moreno Estrada, Andrés; Mendizábal Eceizabarrena, Isabel, 1981-; Underhill, Peter; López Valenzuela, María; Peñaloza Espinosa, Rosenda; Buentello Malo, Leonor; Avelino, Heriberto; Calafell i Majó, Francesc; Comas, David (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012)
    The genetic characterization of Native Mexicans is important to understand multiethnic based features influencing the medical genetics of present Mexican populations, as well as to the reconstruct the peopling of the ...
