Signatures of pleiotropy, economy and convergent evolution in a domain-resolved map of human-virus protein-protein interaction networks.

A central challenge in host-pathogen systems biology is the elucidation of general, systems-level principles that distinguish host-pathogen interactio...

Evolution of protein-protein interaction networks in yeast.
Interest in the evolution of protein-protein and genetic interaction networks has been rising in recent years, but the lack of large-scale high quality comparative datasets has acted as a barrier. Here, we carried out a comparative analysis of comput

Divergent and Convergent Evolution of Fungal Pathogenicity.
Fungal pathogens of plants and animals have multifarious effects; they cause devastating damages to agricultures, lead to life-threatening diseases in humans, or induce beneficial effects by reducing insect pest populations. Many virulence factors ha

Convergent evolution of vocal cooperation without convergent evolution of brain size.
One pragmatic underlying successful vocal communication is the ability to take turns. Taking turns - a form of cooperation - facilitates the transmission of signals by reducing the amount of their overlap. This allows vocalizations to be better heard

Parallel or convergent evolution in human population genomic data revealed by genotype networks.
Genotype networks are representations of genetic variation data that are complementary to phylogenetic trees. A genotype network is a graph whose nodes are genotypes (DNA sequences) with the same broadly defined phenotype. Two nodes are connected if

Grasping convergent evolution in syngnathids: a unique tale of tails.
Seahorses and pipehorses both possess a prehensile tail, a unique characteristic among teleost fishes, allowing them to grasp and hold onto substrates such as sea grasses. Although studies have focused on tail grasping, the pattern of evolutionary tr

Convergent evolution of hemoglobin switching in jawed and jawless vertebrates.
During development, humans and other jawed vertebrates (Gnathostomata) express distinct hemoglobin genes, resulting in different hemoglobin tetramers. Embryonic and fetal hemoglobin have higher oxygen affinities than the adult hemoglobin, sustaining

Convergent evolution of ribonuclease h in LTR retrotransposons and retroviruses.
Ty3/Gypsy long terminals repeat (LTR) retrotransposons are structurally and phylogenetically close to retroviruses. Two notable structural differences between these groups of genetic elements are 1) the presence in retroviruses of an additional envel

Pleiotropy can be effectively estimated without counting phenotypes through the rank of a genotype-phenotype map.
Although pleiotropy, the capability of a gene to affect multiple phenotypes, has been well known as one of the common gene properties, a quantitative estimation remains a great challenge, simply because of the phenotype complexity. Not surprisingly,

Evolution of functional connectivity of brain networks and their dynamic interaction in temporal lobe epilepsy.
This study presents a cross-sectional investigation of functional networks in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) as they evolve over years of disease. Networks of interest were identified based on a priori hypotheses: the network of seizure propagation ips

Convergent evolution in social swallows (Aves: Hirundinidae).
Behavioral shifts can initiate morphological evolution by pushing lineages into new adaptive zones. This has primarily been examined in ecological behaviors, such as foraging, but social behaviors may also alter morphology. Swallows and martins (Hiru
