Viral metagenomics demonstrates that domestic pigs are a potential reservoir for Ndumu virus
Virology Journal 2012, 9:218 (24 September 2012)
Ndumu virus was isolated in the 1950s from mosquitoes in Kenya and is a potential zoonotic threat to humans and other animals. In this study Ndumu virus was found in domestic pigs using metagenomic techniques, the first time that this virus has been detected in a vertebrate host.

Viral metagenomic analysis of bushpigs ( Potamochoerus larvatus) in Uganda identifies novel variants of Porcine parvovirus 4 and Torque teno sus virus 1 and 2
Virology Journal 2012, 9:192 (11 September 2012)
Wild animals are carriers of pathogens that have the potential to infect humans and domestic animals. Using a metagenomic approach, the authors sequenced the viral microbiome of Ugandan bushpigs, and identified new variants of Porcine parvovirus 4 and Torque teno sus virus 1 and 2.

Recent developments in statistical methods for detecting genetic loci affecting phenotypic variability
BMC Genetics 2012, 13:63 (24 July 2012)
Lars Ronnegard and William Valdar compare recent developments in statistical methods for detecting genetic loci affecting phenotypic variability (vQTL), reviewing the connections between approaches and their trade-offs in balancing the need for robustness, flexibility, and speed.

A carboxylesterase, Esterase-6, modulates sensory physiological and behavioral response dynamics to pheromone in Drosophila
BMC Biology 2012, 10:56 (21 June 2012)
A role for pheromone-degrading enzymes in modulating pheromone perception is now demonstrated in fruit flies, whose sensory perception of an anti-aphrodisiac, and behavioral responses to it, are enhanced in mutants that lack the enzyme capable of degrading this pheromone in vitro.

Evaluation of alternative RNA labeling protocols for transcript profiling with Arabidopsis AGRONOMICS1 tiling arrays
Plant Methods 2012, 8:18 (13 June 2012)
This paper is very relevant for those whose research focusses on the plastidial or mitochondrial transcriptome. The authors present a random-primed RNA labeling procedure that avoids the use of standard oligo-dT based methods that require the transcripts to be polyadenylated. They also provide recommended procedures for downstream analysis of the transcriptomics data from genomic tiling arrays.
