  • Alonso Caballero, Jordi; Scott, Kate M.; Alonso Caballero, Jordi (Elsevier, 2014)
    OBJECTIVE: The associations between mental disorders and cancer remain unclear. It is also unknown whether any associations vary according to life stage or gender. This paper examines these research questions using data ...

    Cells that reside within a community can cooperate and also compete with each other for resources. It remains unclear how these opposing interactions are resolved at the population level. Here we investigate such an internal ...
  • Xue, Yali; Prado Martínez, Javier, 1987-; de Manuel, Marc; Hernández Rodríguez, Jéssica, 1983-; Lobón, Irene; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975-; Scally, Aylwyn (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2015)
    Mountain gorillas are an endangered great ape subspecies and a prominent focus for conservation, yet we know little about their genomic diversity and evolutionary past. We sequenced whole genomes from multiple wild individuals ...
  • Cournia, Zoe; Selent, Jana; Bondar, Ana-Nicoleta (Springer, 2015)
    Membrane proteins mediate processes that are fundamental for the flourishing of biological cells. Membrane-embedded transporters move ions and larger solutes across membranes; receptors mediate communication between the ...
  • Koepfli, Klaus-Peter; Paten, Benedict; Genome 10K Community of Scientists; O'Brien, Stephen J.; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975- (Annual Reviews Inc, 2015)
    The Genome 10K Project was established in 2009 by a consortium of biologists and genome scientists determined to facilitate the sequencing and analysis of the complete genomes of 10,000 vertebrate species. Since then the ...
  • Prindle, Arthur; Liu, Jintao; Asally, Munehiro; Ly, San; Garcia Ojalvo, Jordi; Süel, Gürol M. (Nature Research, 2015)
    The study of bacterial ion channels has provided fundamental insights into the structural basis of neuronal signalling; however, the native role of ion channels in bacteria has remained elusive. Here we show that ion ...
  • Steels, Luc (Elsevier, 1995)
    The paper explores a biologically inspired definition of intelligent autonomous agents. Intelligence is related to whether behavior of a system contributes to its self-maintenance. Behavior becomes more intelligent (or ...
  • Benjet, Corina; Alonso Caballero, Jordi; Koenen, Karestan C. (Cambridge University Press, 2016)
    BACKGROUND: Considerable research has documented that exposure to traumatic events has negative effects on physical and mental health. Much less research has examined the predictors of traumatic event exposure. Increased ...
  • Kuhlwilm, Martin; Prado Martínez, Javier, 1987-; Lalueza Fox, Carles, 1965-; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975-; Castellano Hereza, Sergi (Nature Research, 2016)
    It has been shown that Neanderthals contributed genetically to modern humans outside Africa 47,000-65,000 years ago. Here we analyse the genomes of a Neanderthal and a Denisovan from the Altai Mountains in Siberia together ...
  • Creixell, Pau; Gonzalez-Perez, Abel; López Bigas, Núria; Mutation Consequences and Pathway Analysis Working Group of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (Nature Research, 2015)
    Genomic information on tumors from 50 cancer types cataloged by the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) shows that only a few well-studied driver genes are frequently mutated, in contrast to many infrequently ...

    Circulating small RNAs, including miRNAs but also isomiRs and other RNA species, have the potential to be used as non-invasive biomarkers for communicable and non-communicable diseases. This study aims to characterize and ...
