How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Background The members of the genus Muntiacus are of particular interest to evolutionary biologists due to their extreme chromosomal rearrangements and the ongoing discussions about the number of living species. Red muntjacs have the largest distribution of all muntjacs and were formerly considered as one species. Karyotype differences led to the p...
In this study we compared the phylogeographic patterns of two Rusa species, Rusa unicolor and Rusa timorensis, in order to understand what drove and maintained differentiation between these two geographically and genetically close species and investigated the route of introduction of individuals to the islands outside of the Sunda Shelf. We analyze...
The tiger-fly Coenosia attenuata is a globally widespread predatory fly which is not only associated with greenhouse crops, but also occurs in open fields. It is a potential control agent against some of the more common pests in these crops. Assessing the genetic structure and gene flow patterns may be important for planning crop protection strateg...
Mitochondrial genomes of five Laotian Rock Rat (Laonastes aenigmamus) samples from Vietnam and Laos were sequenced using an Illumina platform. After de novo assembly, 13 protein-coding genes and two rRNA (12S and 16S) of the five genomes were aligned and analyzed with those from other related species under maximum likelihood and Bayesian inferences...
Conservation genetics can provide data needed by conservation practitioners for their decisions regarding the management of vulnerable or endangered species, such as the sun bear Helarctos malayanus. Throughout its range, the sun bear is threatened by loss and fragmentation of its habitat and the illegal trade of both live bears and bear parts. Sha...
Efficient methods for building genomic sequencing libraries from degraded DNA have been in place for Illumina sequencing platforms for some years now, but such methods are still lacking for other sequencing platforms. Here, we provide a protocol for building genomic libraries from degraded DNA (archival or ancient sample material) for sequencing on...
Background: Southeast (SE) Asia is one of the most biodiverse regions in the world and it holds approximately 20% of all mammal species. Despite this, the majority of SE Asia's genetic diversity is still poorly characterised. The growing interest in using environmental DNA (eDNA) to assess and monitor SE Asian species, in particular threatened mamm...
Im Verlauf von Jahrmillionen gestalteten evolutionäre Kräfte die Verbreitung und genetische Variabilität von Arten, indem sie die Anpassungsfähigkeit und Überlebenswahrscheinlichkeit dieser Arten beeinflussten. Da Südostasien eine außerordentlich artenreiche Region darstellt, eignet sie sich besonders, um den Einfluss dieser Kräfte zu untersuchen....
More than a century after its emergence, coffee leaf rust (CLR), caused by the complex biotrophic fungal pathogen Hemileia vastatrix, remains the main threat to Arabica coffee production worldwide. Engaged in a dynamic system of host-pathogen co-evolution with the consequent occurrence of frequent shifts in pathotypes, H. vastatrix has been able to...
South-East Asia is a biodiversity hotspot. Deciphering the phylogeographic history of southeast asian mammals and relating this history to the geological/geographic history of South-East Asia (an in particular to the Sunda shelf) will help to decipher the drivers of mammalian evolution in this region.
We are trying to understand how vicariant events have shaped the distribution of lineages in one of the major biodiversity hotspots. Focusing on ungulate species allows to investigate differences between specialist and generalist species, small and big population sizes and evolution in allo- and sympatry.
