  1. doi request reprint Detection of phylogenetically informative polymorphisms in the entire euchromatic portion of human Y chromosome from a Sardinian sample
    Paolo Francalacci
    Dipartimento di Scienze della Natura e del Territorio, Universita di Sassari, Sassari, Italy
    BMC Res Notes 8:174. 2015
    ..Next-Generation Sequencing methods have led to a great increase in phylogenetically useful markers within the male specific portion of the Y chromosome, but previous studies have limited themselves to the study of the X-degenerate regions...
  2. doi request reprint Low-pass DNA sequencing of 1200 Sardinians reconstructs European Y-chromosome phylogeny
    Paolo Francalacci
    Dipartimento di Scienze della Natura e del Territorio, Universita di Sassari, Sassari, Italy
    Science 341:565-9. 2013
    ..We calculate a putative age for coalescence of ~180,000 to 200,000 years ago, which is consistent with previous mitochondrial DNA-based estimates. ..
  3. pmc Ancestral European roots of Helicobacter pylori in India
    S Manjulata Devi
    Pathogen Evolution Group, Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics, Hyderabad, India
    BMC Genomics 8:184. 2007
    ..pylori. We tried to address these issues through mapping genetic origins of present day H. pylori in India and their genomic comparison with hundreds of isolates from different geographic regions...
  4. pmc Mitochondrial DNA reveals genetic structuring of Pinna nobilis across the Mediterranean Sea
    Daria Sanna
    Dipartimento di Scienze della Natura e del Territorio Sezione di Zoologia, Archeozoologia e Genetica, Universita di Sassari, Sassari, Italy
    PLoS ONE 8:e67372. 2013
    ..From a conservational point of view, populations from the three genetically divergent groups found may be considered as different management units. ..
  5. doi request reprint The First Mitogenome of the Cyprus Mouflon (Ovis gmelini ophion): New Insights into the Phylogeny of the Genus Ovis
    Daria Sanna
    Dipartimento di Scienze della Natura e del Territorio, University of Sassari, Sassari, Italy
    PLoS ONE 10:e0144257. 2015
    ..Furthermore, the updated phylogenetic tree presented in this study determines a finer classification of ovine species and may help to classify more accurately new mitogenomes within the established haplogroups so far identified. ..
  6. pmc A comparison of Y-chromosome variation in Sardinia and Anatolia is more consistent with cultural rather than demic diffusion of agriculture
    Laura Morelli
    Dipartimento di Zoologia e Genetica Evoluzionistica, Universita di Sassari, Sassari, Italy
    PLoS ONE 5:e10419. 2010
    ..Overall, these results are consistent with the cultural diffusion and do not support the demic model of agriculture diffusion...
  7. pmc Mendelian breeding units versus standard sampling strategies: Mitochondrial DNA variation in southwest Sardinia
    Daria Sanna
    Dipartimento di Zoologia e Genetica Evoluzionistica, Universita di Sassari, Sassari, Italy
    Genet Mol Biol 34:187-94. 2011
    ..Therefore, the MBU sampling strategy can be considered a useful tool in association studies of complex traits...
