Transitions from cross-fertilization to self-fertilization can have profound effects on population genetic structure and patterns of molecular evolution across the genome [1]. Most importantly, homozygosity increases with more intense selfing, which decreases effective population size (N e ) and reduces opportunities for crossing over between heterozygous sites, resulting in elevated linkage disequilibrium [2, 3]. Effective population size is also reduced around selected regions by the effects of genetic hitchhiking, including selective sweeps of beneficial mutations and background selection against deleterious mutations (reviewed in [4]). Linkage among weakly selected sites with opposing selective forces can also interfere with the ability of selection to act efficiently [5].. Estimates of N e in selfers are often lower than the expected two-fold decrease based on selfing alone. This result presumably occurs because life-history characteristics associated with selfing promote population ...

Plant mating systems often involve a mixture of self fertilizations and outcross fertilizations. The degree of selfing has a large impact on the genetic composition of natural populations and on the evolution of the mating system itself in response to such factors as inbreeding depression. This paper describes a means of estimating the long-term rate of self-fertilization from samples of alleles taken from individuals in a population. Use is made of the genealogy of pairs of alleles at a locus within individuals and pairs between individuals. The degree of selfing is closely related to the extent to which the number of nucleotide sites differing within an individual is reduced relative to the number differing between individuals. Importantly, the estimate of long-term selfing is largely independent of population size and is not affected by historical fluctuations in population size; instead it responds directly to the mating system itself. The approach outlined here is most appropriate to ...
Regular TALENs are composed of a DNA binding domain that can be readily engineered to recognize practically any DNA sequence, and a nuclease domain that chops up the DNA at that site, causing deletions. To target a mitochondrial gene, the team modified a plant-adapted TALEN such that it also included a mitochondrial homing signal, and engineered DNA binding domains to recognize particular genes of interest. The researchers then transferred a plasmid encoding a mitoTALEN into plants via agrobacteria-a common strategy used by plant geneticists.. In proof-of-principle experiments, the researchers designed two mitoTALENs, each targeting a particular mitochondrial gene: orf79 in rice and orf125 in rapeseed (canola). The resulting deletions enabled the researchers to confirm the genes hitherto suspected roles in male sterility-a natural phenomenon that prevents self-fertilization in certain hermaphroditic plants, thus promoting hybrid seed development. Indeed, disabling the genes reinstated ...
Many of the characteristics that distinguish plants from other living organisms can be traced to their origin early in the history of life. Features such as a multicellular haploid life stage, prevalent hermaphroditism, self-fertilization, and general dependence on biotic and abiotic vectors for reproduction stem directly from the ability of plants to obtain energy from the sun. This novel mode of energy capture had far-ranging implications for plant evolution.

IntroductionThe aim of this study was to determine the effect of Iran’s health system evolution plan, tariffs change on performance, revenue, and expenditure of a big tertiary hospital in Iran in 2015.MethodsThis cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted in a big tertiary hospital, (Imam Reza), in 1394 using activity based costing in four time spans: before and after health system evolution, after tariff change, and one year after the inauguration of the evolution. Data relating performance, revenue, and expenditure were gathered and analyzed using descriptive statistics by Excel 2013 Software.ResultsCost, revenue, and profit of hospital were increased by 31%, 82%, and 4.6% after health system evolution and by 42%, 38%, and 1.7% after tariff change, respectively. Hospital encountered with 17% loss one year after the inauguration of the evolution, however, cost and revenue of hospital were increased 23% and 3%, respectively.

Doccument Title More details on reproductive cycles The slick mucosa coating their body has been confirmed to be the material which contains their sperm. Small ovaries are contained in their skin. Self-fertilization can occur but results in greatly reduced reproductivity. When allowed to rub against other SCP-562 and to lick each other fertility is increased greatly due to cross-fertilization. Eggs are also contained within this Mucosa. Should they enter a mammals Orifice then the reproductive cycle will begin.. The larva grow consuming each other, vaginal wall linings (menstrual tissues) and semi-digested foodstuffs. When they reach a thickness of 4-5 cm in diameter and a length of 2.5-3 decimeters they will seek to exit. Frequently this is via the same hole they entered. They look like smaller versions of the adults, but are similarly proportioned though they tend to be far thicker compared to length then the more elderly of the adults.. Once they have emerged from the host they seek ...

The genetic basis of infection determines the dynamics of host-parasite coevolution and associated phenomena such as local adaptation and the evolution of sex and recombination. Here, we present parasite resistance as a two-step process in which hosts must first detect parasites and then eradicate them; failure at either step results in infection. The model incorporates -matching-allele- (MA) genetics for detection and -gene-for-gene- (GFG) genetics for eradication. We found that the oscillatory dynamics were similar to pure GFG genetics when the cost of virulence alleles was low, but resembled pure MA genetics when the cost was high. The magnitude of the cost that switched the dynamics from GFG dominated to MA dominated depended on the genetic architecture of defence (i.e. the number of GFG and MA loci).. ...
The philosophical design of Western thinking - with its essentialistic focus (getting to the essence of things) - feels normal in a western setting. It utilizes definitions - abstracting qualities of things encountered - and then looks at a reality in light of such definitions. Combining definitions result in theories, mostly within a particular discipline. Theory provides guidance as to the content of the study of anyone wishing to be fluent in the a subject matter. Theory is augmented by techniques, providing exercises to enhance performance and facilitating measurements. This approach seems to work quite well in Western realities, where all is geared towards this approach (e.g. with language and literacy mostly socially constructed within this view of reality), and congruent with a definition of humans being rational animals ...

In order to get correct dots per inch (DPI) set, the display size must be recognized or set. Having the correct DPI is especially necessary where fine detail is required (like font rendering). Previously, manufacturers tried to create a standard for 96 DPI (a 10.3 diagonal monitor would be 800x600, a 13.2 monitor 1024x768). These days, screen DPIs vary and may not be equal horizontally and vertically. For example, a 19 widescreen LCD at 1440x900 may have a DPI of 89x87. To be able to set the DPI, the Xorg server attempts to auto-detect your monitors physical screen size through the graphic card with DDC ...
Why is self-fertilization in hermaphrodites relatively rare? One hypothesis is that inbreeding load must be low to enable the evolution of selfing (Maynard Smith 1978; Lande and Schemske 1985). Once selfing has evolved, inbreeding load is exposed to purging and should further decline. This is especially true for load caused by recessive mutations with large deleterious effects because of an increase in overall homozygosity levels (Lande and Schemske 1985). These two ideas together predict that selfing populations should have reduced inbreeding load, well below 0.5 (Lande and Schemske 1985). My results for A. lyrata do not support this prediction. Although the inbreeding load was indeed below 0.5 in selfing populations, it was equally low in outcrossing populations.. This finding of low inbreeding load in both selfing and outcrossing populations leads to three important conclusions. First, purging must have been an important force in this system in the past, leading to generally low inbreeding ...
Author Summary Coevolution between hosts and parasites is believed to be central to a number of biological phenomena, most notably the observed patterns of biodiversity and the origins of sexual reproduction. However, classical mathematical models of host-parasite coevolution account neither for the hosts use of bacterial symbionts for protection from parasites, nor for the potential and observed complexity of genetic interactions between the coevolving species. In this article we address both challenges by simulating a large number of models of host-symbiont-parasite coevolution based on randomly generated genotype interaction patterns. We demonstrate that the degree of

THE genus Lycopersicon consists of nine species, of which the only cultivated species is L. esculentum (tomato), represented in the wild by var. cerasiforme (Rick 1983). Lycopersicon species are crossable with one another in all combinations, though with varying degrees of difficulties (Soost 1958). The karyotypes of the 12 chromosome pairs are very similar with little or no structural differences among species (Rick 1983).. Despite this uniformity of karyotypes and the small number of species, Lycopersicon encompasses a great diversity of mating systems. L. cheesmanii, endemic to the Galapagos Islands, has an autogamous mating system, which is typical of many other endemic flowering plants of the archipelago (Rick 1966). Another species exhibiting virtually complete autogamy is L. parviflorum (Rick 1983). Self-fertilization prevails among natural populations as well as cultivated varieties of L. esculentum. In contrast, L. pimpinellifolium shows regional differences in relative levels of ...

As Arabidopsis thaliana is increasingly employed in evolutionary and ecological studies, it is essential to understand patterns of natural genetic variation and the forces that shape them. Previous work focusing mostly on global and regional scales has demonstrated the importance of historical events such as long-distance migration and colonization. Far less is known about the role of contemporary factors or environmental heterogeneity in generating diversity patterns at local scales. We sampled 1,005 individuals from 77 closely spaced stands in diverse settings around Tübingen, Germany. A set of 436 SNP markers was used to characterize genome-wide patterns of relatedness and recombination. Neighboring genotypes often shared mosaic blocks of alternating marker identity and divergence. We detected recent outcrossing as well as stretches of residual heterozygosity in largely homozygous recombinants. As has been observed for several other selfing species, there was considerable heterogeneity among ...
In flowering plants, strategies for sex determination have evolved to prevent self-fertilization that may lead to loss of fitness due to inbreeding (Darwin, 1876). One of these strategies involves the production of unisexual flowers, in which male and female gametes are segregated on different flowers of the same plant (monoecious species) or on separate individuals (dioecious species). Differences occur in the manner in which the reproductive organs are arrested; in maize, for example, the sex organ primordia abort completely (Dellaporta and Calderon-Urrea, 1994), whereas in cucumber, these primordia arrest in their growth (Malepszy and Niemirowcz-Szcytt, 1991; Grant et al., 1994).. Although sex determination in animals is well studied, little is known about the molecular control of this process in plants. To date, only two genes have been cloned that influence sex in maize. The TASSELSEED2 (TS2) gene, which encodes a predicted protein with significant homology with a steroid-specific ...
i) Endogamy (Self-fertilization): It involves the fusion of two types of gametes derived from the same parent (uni-parental) e.g., Taenia. It is a very rare process. (ii) Exogamy (Cross-fertilization): When two fusing gametes are derived from different parents (biparental) e.g., in cockroach, frog, human beings etc. It is more common. On the basis of structure of fusing gametes, syngamy is of following types: (i) Isogamy: When two fusing gametes are morphologically as well as physiologically similar to each other e.g., in Monocystis (a protozoan). Such gametes are called isogametes. (ii) Anisogamy or Heterogamy: When two fusing gametes are morphologically or physiologically different from each other, e.g., in frog, rabbit, human beings etc. Such gametes are called heterogametes or anisogametes {e.g., microgamete or sperm and macrogamete or ovum). ...

This paper describes the first version of the distributed programming architecture for the Grumps1 project. The architecture consists of objects that communicate in terms of both asynchronous and synchronous events. A novel three-level extensible naming scheme is discussed that allows Grumps developers to deploy systems that can refer to entities not identified at the time when the Grumps system and application-level code were implemented. Examples detailing how the topology of a Grumps system may be changed at run-time and how new object implementations may be distributed during system execution are given. The separation of policy from mechanism is shown to be a major part of how system evolution is supported and this is made even more flexible when expressed through the use of Java interfaces for crucial core concepts.. ...
Despite the critical role of Aβ metabolism in AD pathogenesis, our understanding of how endogenous Aβ levels are regulated is still limited. miRNAs have been identified as a new class of regulatory molecules that regulate many biological functions, including pathogenesis of neurological diseases. Although several in vitro studies have implicated miRNAs in AD pathogenesis, whether pharmacological inhibition of a miRNA can be a practical strategy to regulate brain Aβ levels in vivo has not yet been demonstrated. For the first time, we demonstrate here that genetic deletion and pharmacological inhibition, using antisense oligonucleotide, of miR-33 decreased Aβ levels in the brain. In addition, our study provides the first evidence that miR-33 is an endogenous regulator of ABCA1 in the brain and brain-specific miR-33 antagonism may be an effective strategy to modulate Aβ levels.. miRNAs often show strong cell type- and tissue-specific regulation of their targets (Landgraf et al., 2007; ...

The IgG blood picks up antibodies to the virus while the virus is active in your system. So what we see for many participants and clients is that a few months in, the tests often show as borderline or unequivocal. What this means is that the trace of the viral antibodies is so minor that the tests can barely pick up any sign of the virus being present. For others it comes back often at the 5-6 month point as negative. What this therefore indicates is that the treatment acts to kill the herpes cells in their entirety rather than providing what would be an immunity to the virus. As we have tested and discovered those that have been cured do not possess any antibodies to the virus, they have no immunity and can be reinfected again if they have direct contact with the virus, the same as any other person who was not infected ...
