    The six European Saga species (Orthoptera Tettigoniidae) were mitochondrially analyzed for the COI gene. Results were compared with available karyological data, the two analyses producing complementary and congruent ...
  • Osteoarthritis Year in Review 2014: genetics and genomics 

    Tsezou, A. (2014)
    Recent developments in genetics/genomics of osteoarthritis (OA) are discussed to improve our understanding of OA pathophysiology. The discovery of a novel variant near the NCOA3 (nuclear receptor coactivator 3) gene ...
  • The protective effect of LRRK2 p.R1398H on risk of Parkinson's disease is independent of MAPT and SNCA variants
