    Haplogroup H dominates present-day Western European mitochondrial DNA variability (>40%), yet was less common (~19%) among Early Neolithic farmers (~5450 BC) and virtually absent in Mesolithic hunter-gatherers. Here we ...
  • Grosdidier, Solène; Ferrer, Antoni-Lluc, 1942-; Faner, Rosa; Piñero González, Janet, 1977-; Roca, Josep; García Cosio, Borja; Agustí, Alvar; Gea Guiral, Joaquim; Sanz, Ferran; Furlong, Laura I., 1971- (BioMed Central, 2014)
    Background: Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) often suffer concomitant disorders that worsen significantly their health status and vital prognosis. The pathogenic mechanisms underlying COPD ...
  • Tényi, Ákos; Cano, Isaac; Marabita, Francesco; Kiani, Narsis A.; Kalko, Susana G. (BioMed Central, 2018)
    BACKGROUND: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients often show skeletal muscle dysfunction that has a prominent negative impact on prognosis. The study aims to further explore underlying mechanisms of skeletal ...
  • Avena-Koenigsberger, Andrea; Goñi, Joaquín; Solé Vicente, Ricard, 1962-; Sporns, Olaf (Royal Society, 2015)
    The structure of complex networks has attracted much attention in recent years. It has been noted that many real-world examples of networked systems share a set of common architectural features. This raises important ...
