    A large proportion of the death toll associated with malaria is a consequence of malaria infection during pregnancy, causing up to 200,000 infant deaths annually. We previously published the first extensive genetic association ...

    Malaria in pregnancy forms a substantial part of the worldwide burden of malaria, with an estimated annual death toll of up to 200,000 infants, as well as increased maternal morbidity and mortality. Studies of genetic ...

    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 ...
  • Spataro, Nino, 1984-; Roca-Umbert Würth, Ana; Cervera-Carles, Laura; Vallès, Mònica; Anglada Busquets, Roger; Pagonabarraga, Javier; Pascual Sedano, B.; Campolongo Perillo, Antonia; Kulisevsky, Jaime J.; Casals López, Ferran; Clarimón Echevarría, Jordi; Bosch Fusté, Elena (Wiley, 2017)
    Background: The analysis of coverage depth in next-generation sequencing data allows the detection of gene dose alterations. We explore the frequency of such structural events in a Spanish cohort of sporadic PD cases. ...
  • Sikora, Martin, 1976-; Ferrer Admetlla, Anna; Mayor, Alfredo; Bertranpetit, Jaume, 1952-; Casals López, Ferran (Springer, 2008)
    Placental malaria is a special form of malaria that causes up to 200,000 maternal and infant deaths every year. Previous studies show that two receptor molecules, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulphate A, are mediating ...
  • Sikora, Martin, 1976- (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2010-06-04)
    Una de les forces selectives més fortes que han afectat a les poblacions humanes en la història més recent és el paràsit de la malària: Plasmodium falciparum, que és la causa de varis exemples d'adaptació induïda per ...

    Background: Pathogens have represented an important selective force during the adaptation of modern human populations to changing social and other environmental conditions. The evolution of the immune system has therefore ...
  • Ferrer i Admetlla, Anna (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2009-01-07)
    La tesi que teniu a les mans recull quatre treballs amb un objectiu comú; determinar si els patògens (virus, bacteris, paràsits.) han exercit pressions selectives sobre els genomes dels seus hostes (com per exemple els ...

    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 ...

    We have genotyped the 58 STRs (27 autosomal, 24 Y-STRs and 7 X-STRs) and 94 autosomal SNPs in Illumina ForenSeq™ Primer Mix A in 88 Spanish Roma (Gypsy) samples and 143 Catalans. Since this platform is based in massive ...

    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/nand to other non-human primates. Nonetheless, this olfactory decline opens an opportunity for/nevolutionary innovation and improvement. In ...

    Recombination varies greatly among species, as illustrated by the poor conservation of the recombination landscape between humans and chimpanzees. Thus, shorter evolutionary time frames are needed to understand the evolution ...
