Recent Submissions

  • Walker, Jerilyn A.; Baboon Genome Analysis Consortium; Batzer, Mark A. (BioMed Central, 2019)
    Background: Baboons (genus Papio) and geladas (Theropithecus gelada) are now generally recognized as close phylogenetic relatives, though morphologically quite distinct and generally classified in separate genera. Primate ...
  • Kornilios, Panagiotis (Taylor & Francis, 2019)
    The Eurasian or Greek blindsnake, Xerotyphlops vermicularis, is the only European representative of the infraorder Scolecophidia, a largely understudied group of snakes with a poor record of available mitogenomes. Its ...
  • Mussa Juane, Mariamo; Seoane, Luís F., 1985-; Muñuzuri, Alberto P.; Mira, Jorge (Nature Research, 2019)
    Sociolinguistic phenomena often involve interactions across different scales and result in social and linguistic changes that can be tracked over time. Here, we focus on the dynamics of language shift in Galicia, a bilingual ...
  • Mackintosh, Alexander; Laetsch, Dominik R.; Hayward, Alexander; Charlesworth, Brian; Waterfall, Martin; Vila, Roger; Lohse, Konrad (Nature Research, 2019)
    Under the neutral theory, genetic diversity is expected to increase with population size. While comparative analyses have consistently failed to find strong relationships between census population size and genetic diversity, ...
  • Giner Delgado, Carla; Villatoro, Sergi; Lerga Jaso, Jon; Gayà Vidal, Magdalena; Oliva, Meritxell; Castellano Esteve, David; Pantano Rubiño, Lorena, 1982-; Bitarello, Bárbara D.; Izquierdo, David; Noguera, Isaac; Olalde Marquínez, Íñigo, 1987-; Delprat, Alejandra; Blancher, Antoine; Lalueza Fox, Carles, 1965-; Esko, Tõnu; O'Reilly, Paul F.; Andrés Morán, Aida, 1976-; Ferretti, Luca; Puig, Marta; Cáceres Aguilar, Mario (Nature Research, 2019)
    Inversions are one type of structural variants linked to phenotypic differences and adaptation in multiple organisms. However, there is still very little information about polymorphic inversions in the human genome due to ...
  • Garcia Porta, Joan; Carranza Gil-Dolz del Castellar, Salvador; Wollenberg Valero, Katharina C. (Nature Research, 2019)
    Climatic conditions changing over time and space shape the evolution of organisms at multiple levels, including temperate lizards in the family Lacertidae. Here we reconstruct a dated phylogenetic tree of 262 lacertid ...
  • Torruella Loran, Ignasi, 1987-; Ramirez Viña, María Karla; Zapata Contreras, Daniela; Muñoz, Xavier; Garcia Ramallo, Eva; Bonet, Catalina; Gonzalez, Carlos A.; Sala, Núria; Espinosa Parrilla, Yolanda, 1971-; EPIC gastric cancer working group (Wiley, 2019)
    Background: MicroRNAs are small regulatory RNAs with important roles in carcinogenesis. Genetic variants in these regulatory molecules may contribute to disease. We aim to identify allelic variants in microRNAs as ...
  • Merenciano, Miriam; Iacometti, Camillo; González, Josefa (BioMed Central, 2019)
    Transposable elements (TEs) are not randomly distributed in the genome. A genome-wide analysis of the D. melanogaster genome found that differences in TE density across 50 kb genomic regions was due both to transposition ...
  • Vendrell Mir, Pol; Barteri, Fabio; Merenciano, Miriam; González, Josefa; Casacuberta, Josep M.; Castanera, Raúl (BioMed Central, 2019)
    Background: Transposable elements (TEs) are an important source of genomic variability in eukaryotic genomes. Their activity impacts genome architecture and gene expression and can lead to drastic phenotypic changes. ...
  • de Dios, Toni; van Dorp, Lucy; Gelabert Xirinachs, Pere, 1991-; Carøe, Christian; Sandoval Velasco, Marcela; Fregel, Rosa; Escosa, Raül; Aranda, Carles; Huijben, Silvie; Balloux, François; Gilbert, M Thomas; Lalueza Fox, Carles, 1965- (UNLISTED PUBLISHER, 2019)
    Malaria was present in most of Europe until the second half of the 20th century, when it was eradicated through a combination of increased surveillance and mosquito control strategies, together with cross-border and political ...
  • Mayer, Miguel Ángel, 1960-; Rodríguez Blanco, Octavi; Torrejon, Antonio (JMIR Publications Inc., 2019)
    Background: In the last few years, the number of mobile apps for health professionals has increased exponentially. Nevertheless, there is a lack of knowledge about the professional use, training requirements, and quality ...
  • Dumas, Orianne; Varraso, Raphaëlle; Boggs, Krislyn M.; Quinot, Catherine; Zock, Jan-Paul; Henneberger, Paul K.; Speizer, Frank E.; Le Moual, Nicole; Camargo, Carlos A. (American Medical Association, 2019)
    Importance: Exposure to disinfectants in health care workers has been associated with respiratory health outcomes, including asthma. Despite the biological plausibility of an association between disinfectants (irritant ...
  • Plans, Elena; Gullón, Pedro; Cebrecos, Alba; Fontán, Mario; Díez, Julia; Nieuwenhuijsen, Mark J.; Franco, Manuel (MDPI, 2019)
    The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between the density of green spaces at different buffer sizes (300, 500, 1000 and 1500 m) and cardiovascular risk factors (obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol, and ...
  • Cortès-Franch, Imma; Puig Barrachina, Vanessa; Vargas Leguás, Hernán; Arcas, M. Marta; Artazcoz Lazcano, Lucía, 1963- (MDPI, 2019)
    The growth of poor jobs related to economic crisis adds to its increase since the mid-1970s as a result of new forms of flexible employment. In Europe, there is no clear evidence on whether working in a poor-quality job ...
  • Picón-Pagès, Pol; Garcia Buendia, Joan; Muñoz López, Francisco José, 1964- (Elsevier, 2019)
    Nitric oxide (NO) works as a retrograde neurotransmitter in synapses, allows the brain blood flow and also has important roles in intracellular signaling in neurons from the regulation of the neuronal metabolic status to ...
