    DNA methylation patterns are important for establishing cell, tissue, and organism phenotypes, but little is known about their contribution to natural human variation. To determine their contribution to variability, we ...
  • Hernando Herráez, Irene; García Pérez, Raquel; Sharp, Andrew J.; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975- (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2015)
    A fundamental initiative for evolutionary biologists is to understand the molecular basis underlying phenotypic diversity. A long-standing hypothesis states that species-specific traits may be explained by differences in ...
  • Venkatesh, Byrappa; Lorente-Galdós, Belén, 1981-; Quilez, Javier; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975-; Warren, Wesley C. (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
    The emergence of jawed vertebrates (gnathostomes) from jawless vertebrates was accompanied by major morphological and physiological innovations, such as hinged jaws, paired fins and immunoglobulin-based adaptive immunity. ...
  • Giannuzzi, Giuliana; Siswara, Priscillia; Malig, Maika; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975-; Mullikin, James C.; Ventura, Mario; Eichler, Evan E.; NISC Comparative Sequencing Program (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press (CSHL Press), 2013)
    Core duplicons in the human genome represent ancestral duplication modules shared by the majority of intrachromosomal duplication blocks within a given chromosome. These cores are associated with the emergence of novel ...
  • Chipman, Ariel D; Capella Gutiérrez, Salvador Jesús, 1985-; Gabaldón Estevan, Juan Antonio, 1973-; Guigó Serra, Roderic; Mariotti, Marco, 1984-; Richards, Stephan (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2014)
    Myriapods (e.g., centipedes and millipedes) display a simple homonomous body plan relative to other arthropods. All members of the class are terrestrial, but they attained terrestriality independently of insects. Myriapoda ...
  • Lalueza Fox, Carles, 1965-; Gigli, Elena, 1978-; Rasilla Vives, Marco de la; Fortea, Javier; Rosas, Antonio; Bertranpetit, Jaume, 1952-; Krause, Johannes (BioMed Central, 2008)
    Background: The high polymorphism rate in the human ABO blood group gene seems to be related to susceptibility to different pathogens. It has been estimated that all genetic variation underlying the human ABO alleles ...

  • Albà Soler, Mar; Castresana, José (BioMed Central, 2007)
    Background: It has been shown in a variety of organisms, including mammals, that genes that appeared recently in evolution, for example orphan genes, evolve faster than older genes. Low functional constraints at the time ...
  • De, Subhajyoti; López Bigas, Núria; Teichmann, Sarah A. (BioMed Central, 2008)
