An international research consortium has been formed to create the most detailed and medically useful picture to date of human genetic variation. The 1000 Genomes Project will involve sequencing the genomes of at least a thousand people from around the world. The project will receive major support from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Hinxton, England, the Beijing Genomics Institute Shenzhen in China and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of ...

The long-term aim of the project is the compilation of the current knowledge about the presentation, meaning, and function of animals in the literature of medieval Europe in form of an alphabetically ordered encyclopaedia. As a consequence, the encyclopaedia aims to provide: (1) Finding Aid: The encyclopaedia lists relevant text passages where the animal under discussion plays a central role. Furthermore, it refers the reader to already existing encyclopaedic articles and other relevant literature; (2) ... [Information of the supplier]

This private web site is devoted to asiloid flies (Asiloidea, Orthorrapha, Diptera) of the families Apioceridae (flower-loving flies) & Mydidae (mydas flies). Apioceridae (138 species) only occur in Argentina, Australia, Chile, western North America, and South Africa whereas Mydidae (463 species) are distributed worldwide. The web site supplies a bibliography and catalogues of both taxa and presents the aims and recent publications of research project on asiloid flies’ phylogeny, taxonomy, and b ...

This dataset contains 99 genes and comes from Catalina Betancur's review published in Brain Research in 2011 (Betancur, 2011). Different genetic and genomic disorders in which ASDs have been described as one of the possible manifestations were collected. Genes, CNVs and linkage regions associated with autism were searched from literature and curated. Six categories of literatures were included in our collection: genome-wide association studies, expression profiling, genome-wide CNV studies, linkage ... [Information of the supplier]

The Avian Knowledge Network (AKN) is an international organization of government and non-government institutions focused on understanding the patterns and dynamics of bird populations across the Western Hemisphere. The goal is to educate the public on the dynamics of bird populations, provide interactive decision-making tools for land managers, make available a data resource for scientific research, and advance new exploratory analysis techniques to study bird populations. Additionally, the AKN ... [Information of the supplier, modified]
