Syntenic block overlap multiplicities with a panel of reference genomes provide a signature of ancient polyploidization events

Background Following whole genome duplication (WGD), there is a compact distribution of gene similarities within the genome reflecting duplicate pairs of all the genes in the genome. With time, the distribution broadens and loses volume due to variable decay of duplicate gene similarity and to the process of duplicate gene loss. If there are two WGD, the older one becomes so ...

Search for relativistic magnetic monopoles with five years of the ANTARES detector data

A search for magnetic monopoles using five years of data recorded with the ANTARES neutrino telescope from January 2008 to December 2012 with a total live time of 1121 days is presented. The analysis is carried out in the range β > 0.6 of magnetic monopole velocities using a strategy based on run-by-run Monte Carlo simulations. No signal above the background expectation from ...

An algorithm for the reconstruction of high-energy neutrino-induced particle showers and its application to the ANTARES neutrino telescope

A novel algorithm to reconstruct neutrino-induced particle showers within the ANTARES neutrino telescope is presented. The method achieves a median angular resolution of \(6^\circ \) for shower energies below 100 TeV. Applying this algorithm to 6 years of data taken with the ANTARES detector, 8 events with reconstructed shower energies above 10 TeV are observed. This is consistent ...

Standardized Measures of Coastal Wetland Condition: Implementation at a Laurentian Great Lakes Basin-Wide Scale

Since European settlement, over 50 % of coastal wetlands have been lost in the Laurentian Great Lakes basin, causing growing concern and increased monitoring by government agencies. For over a decade, monitoring efforts have focused on the development of regional and organism-specific measures. To facilitate collaboration and information sharing between public, private, and ...

Measurement of double-differential cross sections for top quark pair production in pp collisions at \(\sqrt{s} = 8\) \(\,\text {TeV}\) and impact on parton distribution functions

Normalized double-differential cross sections for top quark pair (\(\mathrm{t}\overline{\mathrm{t}}\)) production are measured in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 8\(\,\text {TeV}\) with the CMS experiment at the LHC. The analyzed data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 19.7\(\,\text {fb}^{-1}\). The measurement is performed in the dilepton \(\mathrm {e}^{\pm }\mu ...

Genome-Wide Analysis of Adaptive Molecular Evolution in the Carnivorous Plant Utricularia gibba

The genome of the bladderwort Utricularia gibba provides an unparalleled opportunity to uncover the adaptive landscape of an aquatic carnivorous plant with unique phenotypic features such as absence of roots, development of water-filled suction bladders, and a highly ramified branching pattern. Despite its tiny size, the U. gibba genome accommodates approximately as many genes as ...

The Contribution of Nearshore Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs) to Food Security and Livelihoods in Solomon Islands

Fish aggregating devices, or FADs, are used widely in developing countries to concentrate pelagic fish, making them easier to catch. Nearshore FADs anchored close to the coast allow access for rural communities, but despite their popularity among policy makers, there is a dearth of empirical analysis of their contributions to the supply of fish and to fisheries management. In this ...

Molecular Evolutionary Mechanisms Driving Functional Diversification of the HSP90A Family of Heat Shock Proteins in Eukaryotes

The ubiquitous and conserved cytosolic heat-shock proteins 90 (HSP90A) perform essential functions in the cell. To understand the evolutionary origin of HSP90A functional diversification, we analyzed the distribution of HSP90A family from 54 species representing the main eukaryotic lineages. Three independent HSP90A duplications led to the paralog subfamilies HSP90AA (heat-stress ...

Cardiac Sarcoidosis: Case Report, Workup, and Review of the Literature

Introduction Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, with coronary heart disease being the most common manifestation disease. While deaths attributed to coronary heart disease are falling in the developed world, the number of patients with cardiomyopathy continues to increase. In this paper, the current literature on imaging modalities for infiltrative and ...

Intrinsic limits on resolutions in muon- and electron-neutrino charged-current events in the KM3NeT/ORCA detector

Studying atmospheric neutrino oscillations in the few-GeV range with a multi-megaton detector promises to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy. This is the main science goal pursued by the future KM3NeT/ORCA water Cherenkov detector in the Mediterranean Sea. In this paper, the processes that limit the obtainable resolution in both energy and direction in charged-current neutrino ...

Stacked search for time shifted high energy neutrinos from gamma ray bursts with the Antares neutrino telescope

A search for high-energy neutrino emission correlated with gamma-ray bursts outside the electromagnetic prompt-emission time window is presented. Using a stacking approach of the time delays between reported gamma-ray burst alerts and spatially coincident muon-neutrino signatures, data from the Antares neutrino telescope recorded between 2007 and 2012 are analysed. One year of ...

Ancient eudicot hexaploidy meets ancestral eurosid gene order

Background A hexaploidization event over 125 Mya underlies the evolutionary lineage of the majority of flowering plants, including very many species of agricultural importance. Half of these belong to the rosid subgrouping, containing severals whose genome sequences have been published. Although most duplicate and triplicate genes have been lost in all descendants, clear traces of ...
