About mtDNA

When forensic cases arise where there is insufficient biological material for nuclear DNA typing, mitochondrial DNA analysis can provide valuable supplemental information, even from such limited samples as half-centimeter long hair fragments or single teeth. Because of its usefulness when limited biological material is available, and due to its unique…

Difference Between Mitochondrial DNA and Nuclear DNA

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) carries genetic information that serves as a set of instructions for growth and development, as well as the ultimate function and reproduction of an organism. It is a nucleic acid, one of four major types of macromolecules known to be essential for all life forms. Each DNA molecule…

Natera launches Prospera with quantification to improve kidney graft rejection testing

Natera has announced the launch of Prospera with quantification, the only cell-free DNA (cfDNA) test for kidney rejection that provides three values—the quantity of donor-derived cfDNA (dd-cfDNA), fraction of dd-cfDNA, and total cfDNA—on every report. Combining these three metrics has been shown to improve sensitivity when evaluating transplant rejection, compared…

Merging genotyping array VCFs and then running kinship analysis

Merging genotyping array VCFs and then running kinship analysis 0 Hello, I have about 4200 array genotyping VCFs (from the Illumina Infinium CoreExome-24 Kit) and I have merged them using bcftools merge. The chip has 500K exonic SNPs. These are trio data – which means 1700 of them are probands,…

Transposition and duplication of MADS-domain transcription factor genes in annual and perennial Arabis species modulates flowering

Annual and perennial species occur in many plant families. Annual plants and some perennials are monocarpic (flowering once in their life cycle), characterized by a massive flowering and typically produce many seeds before the whole plant senesces. By contrast, most perennials live for many years, show delayed reproduction, and are…

Emergence of the Coexistence of mcr-1, blaNDM-5, and blaCTX-M-55 in Kl

Introduction Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae) is an opportunistic pathogen and the leading cause of healthcare-associated infections.1 Multidrug-resistant (MDR) K. pneumoniae isolates are rapidly spreading, thus limiting the choice of antimicrobial agents for empiric treatment of infections caused by these microorganisms; hence, this is a public health challenge.2 Polymyxins are last-resort…

Plasmid-Encoded VIM-2-pProducing Pseudomonas stutzeri | IDR

Introduction Pseudomonas stutzeri is an aerobic, nonfermenting, active, Gram-negative oxidase-positive bacterium with unique colony morphology.1,2 Burri and Stutzer first described it in 1985,3 and the specific metabolic properties, such as denitrification, degradation of aromatic compounds, and nitrogen fixation, distinguish it from other pseudomonads species.2,4 Historically, P. stutzeri was not commonly…

KING struggle: Relatedness

I struggle to infer relationships in a dataset of 20K exomes from tens of kits. At first I found a well-covered union of regions – check. Second, I performed everything to merge 20K VCFs into one. Removed indels and multi-allelic variants. Check. Still, when I run KING with “kinship” option,…
