Comparative hybridization reveals extensive genome variation in the AIDS-associated pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans
Genome Biology 2008, 9:R41 (22 February 2008)
Extensive genome variation in the AIDS-associated pathogen
Cryptococcus neoformans is revealed through comparative genome hybridization between strains of different mating type, molecular subtype and ploidy.
Mechanisms of intron gain and loss in Cryptococcus
Genome Biology 2008, 9:R24 (30 January 2008)
Comparison of five relatively closely related yeast
Cryptococcus genomes suggests that recombination causes internal intron loss and that DNA repeat expansion can create new introns in a population.

BMC Infectious Diseases 2008, 8:8 (24 January 2008)
Horizontal gene transfer and the evolution of transcriptional regulation in Escherichia coli
Genome Biology 2008, 9:R4 (7 January 2008)
Most Escherichia coli transcription factors have paralogs, but these usually arose by horizontal gene transfer rather than by duplication within the E. coli lineage, as previously believed.
Conditional genotype analysis: detecting secondary disease loci in linkage disequilibrium with a primary disease locus
BMC Proceedings 2007, 1(Suppl 1):S163 (18 December 2007)
Systematics and plastid genome evolution of the cryptically photosynthetic parasitic plant genus Cuscuta (Convolvulaceae)
BMC Biology 2007, 5:55 (13 December 2007)
The parasitic plant genus Cuscuta has undergone complex patterns of evolution according to new evidence from DNA sequence data, therefore classifying this unusual group based on morphological or ecological characteristics alone is misleading.

The effect of HIV on morbidity and mortality in children with severe malarial anaemia
Malaria Journal 2007, 6:143 (31 October 2007)
This study demonstrates that HIV-infected children were approximately three times more likely to die within seven days of a symptomatic malaria episode than HIV-uninfected children, and had more frequent re-admissions due to malaria within 28 days.
Usage patterns, health, and nutritional status of long-term multiple dietary supplement users: a cross-sectional study
Nutrition Journal 2007, 6:30 (24 October 2007)
Complete plastid genome sequences suggest strong selection for retention of photosynthetic genes in the parasitic plant genus Cuscuta
BMC Plant Biology 2007, 7:57 (24 October 2007)
Parasitic Cuscuta species have surprisingly retained genes involved in photosynthesis, unlike the parasitic plant Epifagus which lost these genes, suggesting that selection on RuBisCo and photosystems is the primary reason for maintaining the plastid genome in Cuscuta.
Effectiveness of the polysaccharide pneumococcal vaccine among HIV-infected persons in Brazil: a case control study
BMC Infectious Diseases 2007, 7:119 (23 October 2007)
Comparative genomic analysis of fungal genomes reveals intron-rich ancestors
Genome Biology 2007, 8:R223 (19 October 2007)
Analysis of intron gain and loss in fungal genomes provides support for an intron-rich fungus-animal ancestor.

Longitudinal, population-based study of racial/ethnic differences in colorectal cancer survival: impact of neighborhood socioeconomic status, treatment and comorbidity
BMC Cancer 2007, 7:193 (16 October 2007)
Association with the origin recognition complex suggests a novel role for histone acetyltransferase Hat1p/Hat2p
BMC Biology 2007, 5:38 (19 September 2007)
The yeast histone acetyltransferase Hat1p is involved in nuclear chromatin assembly, but also interacts with the origin recognition complex and with chromatin during S-phase, suggesting a new role for this histone acetyltransferase in DNA replication.
Aging impacts transcriptomes but not genomes of hormone-dependent breast cancers
Breast Cancer Research 2007, 9:R59 (12 September 2007)
Epigenetic transcriptome changes, more than genotypic variation, account for age-associated differences in the incidence and prognosis of sporadic hormone-dependant breast cancer, according to microarray study.
The importance of comparative phylogeography in diagnosing introduced species: a lesson from the seal salamander, Desmognathus monticola
BMC Ecology 2007, 7:7 (7 September 2007)
Isolated seal salamanders hundreds of kilometers from their native habitat share identical haplotypes with salamanders in the main population, revealing them to be an invader that threatens local species, rather than a relict that needs conserving.
