Geographic differentiation of polymorphism in the Plasmodium falciparum malaria vaccine candidate gene SERA5.
We performed evolutionary and population genetic analysis of sera5. The level of inter-species divergence (kS=0.076) between P. falciparum and Plasmodium reichenowi, a closely related chimpanzee malaria parasite is comparable to that of housekeeping protein genes. A signature of purifying selection...
How diverse is the World Heritage list?
We measure the degree of cultural diversity on the World Heritage list, considering both geographical and chronological unbalances. Second, we estimate the number of sites that would guarantee the highest level of cultural diversity and, then, we propose to increase the quality of the World Heritage...
International trade in services: a geo–economic evolution profile analysis
This paper aims to provide an empirical investigation on the services international trade through an empirical geo–economic approach in comparing its evolution in recent years. Geo–economics point of view, in this paper, means to exam the spatial profile of international trade flows distribution...
Terra Australis to Oceania: racial geography in the "fifth part of the world".
This paper is a synoptic history of racial geography in the 'fifth part of the world' or Oceania - an extended region embracing what are now Australia, Island Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands, Aotearoa/New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. The period in question stretches from classic...
A review on Anopheles subpictus Grassi--a biological vector.
Anopheles subpictus is a complex of four isomorphic sibling species A, B, C and D and is recognized as a primary vector of malaria, a disease of great socio-economic importance, in Australasian Zone, Celebes, Portuguese Timor and South East Asia and a secondary vector in Sri Lanka. This species is a...
Asthma research performance in Asia-Pacific: a bibliometric analysis by searching PubMed database.
Asthma research in Asia-Pacific were mainly conducted in countries in Oceania and Northeast Asia and research performance strongly correlated with the nation's wealth. Interesting asthma research projects in the region were recommended....
Primary oral melanoma: Population-based incidence
We found a total of 124,436 oral cavity cancers reported from all population-based cancer registries and 319 cases of POM reported by 67 cancer registries. To our knowledge this is the largest number of POM cases analyzed and accounts for 0.26% of all oral cavity cancers. ASR(W) for POM do not excee...
The 2009 pandemic H1N1 influenza and indigenous populations of the Americas and the Pacific.
There are few structured data available to assess the risks associated with pandemic influenza A(H1N1)v infection according to ethnic groups. In countries of the Americas and the Pacific where these data are available, the attack rates are higher in indigenous populations, who also appear to be at a...
Pandemic H1N1 influenza lessons from the southern hemisphere.
Genetic diversity patterns at the human clock gene period 2 are suggestive of population-specific positive selection.
We sequenced a 7.7 kb portion of the gene in 20 individuals worldwide. In total, 25 variable sites were identified. The geographic distribution of haplotypes defined by five polymorphic sites was analyzed in 499 individuals from 11 populations from four continents. No evidence for latitude-driven se...
