Ocean plankton. Structure and function of the global ocean microbiome.
Heidelberg, Germany. In Science, Jun 2015
We analyzed 7.2 terabases of metagenomic data from 243 Tara Oceans samples from 68 locations in epipelagic and mesopelagic waters across the globe to generate an ocean microbial reference gene catalog with >40 million nonredundant, mostly novel sequences from viruses, prokaryotes, and picoeukaryotes.
Meta-analysis of Genome-Wide Association Studies Identifies Novel Loci Associated With Optic Disc Morphology.
Rotterdam, Netherlands. In Genet Epidemiol, Mar 2015
We identified 10 new loci associated with disc area (CDC42BPA, F5, DIRC3, RARB, ABI3BP, DCAF4L2, ELP4, TMTC2, NR2F2, and HORMAD2) and another 10 new loci associated with cup area (DHRS3, TRIB2, EFEMP1, FLNB, FAM101, DDHD1, ASB7, KPNB1, BCAS3, and TRIOBP).
Expanding the World of Marine Bacterial and Archaeal Clades.
Bremen, Germany. In Front Microbiol, 2014
The importance of these questions is underlined by concerted, large-scale, and global ocean sampling initiatives, for example the International Census of Marine Microbes, Ocean Sampling Day, or Tara Oceans.
Wrapping up stereocilia rootlets.
Paris, France. In Cell, 2010
Kitajiri et al. (2010) now show that the actin-binding protein TRIOBP tightly bundles the actin filaments into rootlets, endowing these stereocilia "pivots" with unique elasticity and robustness.
