The Forbes’ Quarry and Devil’s Tower partial crania from Gibraltar are among the first Neanderthal remains ever found. Here, we show that small amounts of ancient DNA are preserved in the petrous bones of the 2 individuals despite unfavorable climatic conditions. However, the endogenous Neanderthal DNA is present among an overwhelming excess of recent human DNA. Using improved DNA library construction methods that enrich for DNA fragments carrying deaminated cytosine residues, we were able to se...

BACKGROUND: Venoms and the toxins they contain represent molecular adaptations that have evolved on numerous occasions throughout the animal kingdom. However, the processes that shape venom protein evolution are poorly understood because of the scarcity of whole-genome data available for comparative analyses of venomous species. RESULTS: We performed a broad comparative toxicogenomic analysis to gain insight into the genomic mechanisms of venom evolution in robber flies (Asilidae). We first sequ...

AbstractThe complete mitochondrial genome of Dasypogon diadema (Insecta: Diptera) was sequenced using the Illumina MiSeq` platform. Its mt-genome spans over 16,947 bp with a GC content of 26.6% containing 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, and 2 rRNA genes. The phylogenetic relationship of Dasypogon diadema and 11 other dipteran species was reconstructed and the phylogenetic position confirmed.
