- ... The human gut microbiota has been identified as a possible novel CVD risk factor. This review aims to summarise recent insights connecting human gut microbiome activities with CVD and how such activities may be modulated by diet. Aberrant gut microbiota profiles have been associated with obesity, type 1 and type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Transfer of microbiota from obese an ...

- ... The increasing availability of genomic tools improves our ability to investigate the patterns of genetic diversity and relatedness among individuals. The pedigrees of many apple cultivars are completely unknown, often reducing the efficiency of breeding programs. Using a multilocus simple sequence repeat dataset, we applied a novel multi-generation pedigree-network reconstruction procedure based o ...

- ... The development of inexpensive and highly productive biomass sources of biofuel is a priority in global climate change biology. Arundo donax, also known as the giant reed, is recognized as one of the most promising nonfood bioenergy crops in Europe. Despite its relevance, to date no genomic resources are available to support the characterization of the developmental, adaptive and metabolic traits ...
