Microsatellites are widely used in population genetics, but their evolutionary dynamics remain poorly understood. It is unclear whether microsatellite loci drift in length over time. We identify more than 27 million microsatellites using a novel and unique dataset of modern and ancient Adelie penguin genomes along with data from 63 published chordate genomes. We investigate microsatellite evolutionary dynamics over two time scales: one based on the Adelie penguin samples dating to approximately ...
Biodiversity monitoring has become a critical task for governments and ecological research agencies for reducing significant loss of animal species. Existing monitoring methods are time-intensive and techniques such as tagging are also invasive and may adversely affect animals. Bioacoustics based monitoring is becoming an increasingly prominent non-invasive method, involving the passive recording of animal sounds. Bioacoustics analysis can provide deep insights into key environmental integrity i...

Abstract Ross River virus (RRV) is Australia’s most epidemiologically important mosquito-borne disease. During RRV epidemics in the State of Victoria (such as 2010/11 and 2016/17) notifications can account for up to 30% of national RRV notifications. However, little is known about factors which can forecast RRV transmission in Victoria. We aimed to understand factors associated with RRV transmission in epidemiologically important regions of Victoria and establish an early warning forecast system...

EMBL Australia Bioinformatics Resource (EMBL-ABR) is a developing national research infrastructure, providing bioinformatics resources and support to life science and biomedical researchers in Australia. EMBL-ABR comprises 10 geographically distributed national nodes with one coordinating hub, with current funding provided through Bioplatforms Australia and the University of Melbourne for its initial 2-year development phase. The EMBL-ABR mission is to: (1) increase Australia’s capacity in bioin...

Lifespan and fecundity, the main components in evolutionary fitness, are both strongly affected by nutritional state. Geometric framework of nutrition (GFN) experiments has shown that lifespan and ...

Mosquito-borne diseases are a major public health problem causing a significant burden on the economies globally. Central to comprehending the dynamics of mosquito-borne diseases and effective management, is a dual understanding of seasonality in host and vector life history traits, yet these interrelationships are poorly understood in most cases. Ross River virus (RRV) is Australia’s most epidemiologically important mosquitoborne disease and presents a unique opportunity to identify mechanisms ...

Debilitating skin infestations caused by the mite, Sarcoptes scabiei, have a profound impact on human and animal health globally. In Australia, this impact is evident across different segments of Australian society, with a growing recognition that it can contribute to rapid declines of native Australian marsupials. Cross-host transmission has been suggested to play a significant role in the epidemiology and origin of mite infestations in different species but a chronic lack of genetic resources ...

ABSTRACT Illumina MiSeq shotgun sequencing technology was used to sequence the genomes of two novel sub-Antarctic Williamsia species, designated strains 1135 and 1138. The estimated genome sizes for strains 1135 and 1138 are 5.99 Mb and 6.08 Mb, respectively. This genome sequence information will aid in understanding the lipid metabolic pathways of cold-tolerant Williamsia species.
