El genero Neotropical Pseudopimelodus es el segundo con la mas amplia distribucion de la familia Pseudopimelodidae en Sur America y comprende cuatro especies validas que habitan en diferentes rios trans y cis-andinos. De estas cuatro especies, dos se encuentran registradas en Colombia: P. schultzi distribuida en las cuencas Magdalena-Cauca y Caribe y P. bufonius en el rio Atrato y en las cuencas Amazonas y Orinoco. Diversos procesos paleogeograficos resultantes de la orogenia Andina en Surameric...

La arveja (Pisum sativum L.) es uno de los cultivos domesticados mas antiguos, altamente valorados y ampliamente cultivados en todo el mundo. Sin embargo, en Colombia esta especie carece de estudios geneticos que permitan establecer la variabilidad total. Se estudio la estructura y diversidad genetica en una coleccion de 50 introducciones de arveja arbustiva provenientes del departamento de Narino con 16 marcadores de repeticion de secuencia simple (SSR). El promedio del contenido de informacion...

The Thai-Malay peninsula represents a well-known transition zone between distinct floral and faunal assemblages of the Sundaland and mainland Asian regions and regional biogeographical patterns are known to be complex. The region represents the mid-point of the native range of the tephritid fruit fly Zeugodacus cucurbitae (Coquillett), which has existed in the region for a substantial proportion of its evolutionary history. Here, we integrate data from multiple markers (morphological: wing shape...

Background: The monocled cobra (Naja kaouthia) is a medically important venomous snake in Southeast Asia. Its venom has been shown to vary geographically in relation to venom composition and neurotoxic activity, indicating vast diversity of the toxin genes within the species. To investigate the polygenic trait of the venom and its locale-specific variation, we profiled and compared the venom gland transcriptomes of N. kaouthia from Malaysia (NK-M) and Thailand (NK-T) applying next-generation seq...

Background One of the fundamental measures of molecular genetic variation is the Watterson鈥檚 estimator (胃), which is based on the number of segregating sites. The estimation of 胃 is unbiased only under neutrality and constant population growth. It is well known that the estimation of 胃 is biased when these assumptions are violated. However, the effects of sample size in modulating the bias was not well appreciated.

DNA barcodes of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (COI), cytochrome b (Cytb) genes, and their combined data sets were constructed from 35 snake species in Thailand. No barcoding gap was detected in either of the two genes from the observed intra- and interspecific sequence divergences. Intra- and interspecific sequence divergences of the COI gene differed 14 times, with barcode cut-off scores ranging over 2%鈥4% for threshold values differentiated among most of the different species; the Cytb ...

Boa is a Neotropical genus of snakes historically recognized as monotypic despite its expansive distribution. The distinct morphological traits and color patterns exhibited by these snakes, together with the wide diversity of ecosystems they inhabit, collectively suggest that the genus may represent multiple species. Morphological variation within Boa also includes instances of dwarfism observed in multiple offshore island populations. Despite this substantial diversity, the systematics of the g...

Using multiple markers and multiple analytical approaches is critical for establishing species boundaries reliably, especially so in the case of cryptic species. Despite development of new and powerful analytical methods, most studies continue to adopt a few, with the choice often being subjective. One such example is routine analysis of Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) data using population genetic models despite disparity between method assumptions and data properties. The applica...
