Investigation of the utilization of microsatellites for fingerprinting in three endangered southern African crane species.
Cranes are large elegant birds that occur on all continents of the world except for South America and Antarctica. Of the fifteen species of crane worldwide, three predominantly occur in southern Africa; the Wattled crane ...
Optimisation of the randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique for the characterisation of selected South African maize (Zea mays L.) breeding material.
Maize (Zea mays L.) is an important agronomic crop with the maize industry forming an important component of the South African economy. Considerable effort has been directed towards the genetic improvement of maize through ...
The role of interleukin-10 promoter polymorphisms in HIV-1 susceptibility and primary HIV-1 pathogenesis.
Host genetic factors may partially account for the uneven distribution of HIV infection worldwide. In addition to influencing relative susceptibility to HIV, host genetic factors may also affect the rate of disease progression ...
Association of genetic polymorphisms in select HIV-1 replication cofactors with susceptibility to HIV-1 infection and disease progression.
Objective.Humans differ substantially with respect to susceptibility to human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection and disease progression. This heterogeneity is attributed to the interplay between the environment, ...
