|Expression of Wnt5a in Urothelial Carcinoma as a Potential Prognostic Marker|
Mark Saling 1, Jordan K. Duckett 1, Scott Jenkinson 2 and Ramiro Malgor 3
Our results support the previous studies that suggest Wnt5a plays a pathological role in urothelial carcinoma.

This study is a beautiful example of DHPLC technology application and shows an alternative tool to current strategies of SNP detection based on genotyping array.
|IDENTIFICATION AND DIFERENTIATION OF Verticillium SPECIES WITH PCR MARKERS AND SEQUENCING OF ITS REGION|
Taja Jesenicnik, Nataša Štajner, Jernej Jakše, Sebastijan Radišek and Branka Javornik
The genus Verticillium is a group of ascomycete fungi, including plant-pathogenic species capable of affecting the vasculature of many agricultural crops, and therefore causes major economic losses worldwide. In 2011, a new taxonomic classification of the genus was proposed, which is now referred to as Verticillium sensu stricto, comprising ten species: V. dahliae V. albo-atru, V. alfalfae, V. longisporum, V. nonalfalfae, V. tricorpus, V. zaregamsianum, V. nubilum, V. isaacii and V. klebahnii. <
|Population characterization of Brazilian isolates of Ceratocystis spp. using microsatellites|
Edson Luiz Furtado, Ana Carolina Firmino, Michael Mbenoun, Denise Nakada Nosaki, Ariska Van der Nest, Jolanda Roux, Irene Bernes, Mike Wingfield
The genus Ceratocystis includes several species of economically important plant pathogens and has a global distribution. In Brazil, species in the genus cause disease and death of hosts such as cacao, eucalypts and mango. This study aimed to characterize the population structure and diversity of isolates of Ceratocystis fimbriata sensu lato collected from diseased Eucalyptus species and to compare these to isolates from cacao, mango, teak, fig, rubber and atemoya.

|Contrasting Patterns of Neutral and Adaptive Genetic Variation of Chilean Blue Mussel (Mytilus chilensis) Due to Local Adaptation and Aquaculture|
Cristian Araneda1 , M. Angelica Larrain2, Benjamin Hecht3, Shawn Narum4
This study was designed to investigate patterns of neutral and adaptive genetic variation within Chilean blue mussel populations in order to identify a subset of putatively adaptive genetic markers to investigate the population structure and to improve the ability to trace individuals to their geographical origin, especially in the area with strong aquaculture activities
|Transcription Factors to Classify Tumor Types and Subtypes|
Benjamin Otto 1,2, Kristin Klätschke 2, Thomas Streichert 3, Christoph Wagener 2, Genrich Tolstonog 4
Here we introduce the use of the unsupervised approach to identify transcription factors (TFs) that are specific for different tumor types.
