    BMC Evol Biol 8:266. 2008
    ..However, a few intact and very old HERV genes exist, and likely are beneficial for the host. We here address evolutionary aspects of two HERV-V envelope genes, ENVV1 and ENVV2, located in tandem and containing a long open reading frame...

    Lars Aagaard
    Bioinformatics Research Center, University of Aarhus, DK 8000 Aarhus, Denmark
    Genomics 86:685-91. 2005
    ..The purifying selection and tissue-specific expression of the human ERVPb1 envelope gene provide strong evidence of a beneficial role for the host...
  4. pmc Short tandem repeats in human exons: a target for disease mutations
    Bo Eskerod Madsen
    Bioinformatics Research Center, University of Aarhus, DK 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark
    BMC Genomics 9:410. 2008
    ..In particular, we test whether they share the hypermutability of the longer tandem repeats and whether disease-related genes have a higher STR content than non-disease-related genes...
  5. pmc Improved integration time estimation of endogenous retroviruses with phylogenetic data
    Hugo Martins
    Bioinformatics Research Center, University of Aarhus, Aarhus, Denmark
    PLoS ONE 6:e14745. 2011
    ..Similar approaches have been using either a constant evolutionary rate or a range of rates for these viral loci, and only single species data. Here we show the advantages of using different approaches...

    Bjørn A Nexø
    Department of Human Genetics, University of Aarhus, Aarhus C, Denmark
    PLoS ONE 6:e16652. 2011
    ..We conclude that HERV-Fc1 and TRIM5 play a role in the etiology of multiple sclerosis. If these results are confirmed, they point to new modes of treatment for multiple sclerosis...
