Frontiers | Divergence With Gene Flow and Contrasting Population Size Blur the Species Boundary in Cycas Sect. Asiorientales, as Inferred From Morphology and RAD-Seq Data

Introduction Incipient species are critical for evolutionary biologists to study speciation, but they also challenge taxonomy due to gene flow or ancestral polymorphism. The former and contrasting population size lead to larger intraspecific than interspecific variations, a phenomenon called the species-definition anomaly zone (Jiao and Yang, 2021). The latter results…

Introduction Sleep is a complex neurological and physiological state. It is defined as a natural and reversible state of reduced responsiveness to external stimuli and relative inactivity, accompanied by a loss of consciousness.1 Sleep disorders can be classified as seven major categories: insomnia disorders, sleep-related breathing disorders, central disorders of…

Bioinformation Analysis Reveals IFIT1 as Potential Biomarkers in Centr

Introduction Tuberculosis (TB) is considered to be one of the top ten causes of death in the world, about a quarter of the world’s population is infected with M. tuberculosis.1 The World Health Organization (WHO) divides tuberculosis into pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) and extra-pulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB). Although breakthroughs have been made…

computational chemistry – Troubleshooting an Autodock Vina Error on Chimera: “Could not find an atomic number for Hn Hn”

After having minimized a ligand (that I prepared on Marvinsketch), and after having prepared a target enzyme to dock said ligand onto (collected from RCSP PDB), I was met with an error by the reply log stating that it “could not find atomic number for Hn Hn”. As a new…
