1. The complete genome sequence of a chronic atrophic gastritis Helicobacter pylori strain: evolution during disease progression.

    PNAS 103(26):9999 (2006) PMID 16788065 PMCID PMC1480403

    Helicobacter pylori produces acute superficial gastritis in nearly all of its human hosts. However, a subset of individuals develops chronic atrophic gastritis (ChAG), a condition characterized in part by diminished numbers of acid-producing parietal cells and increased risk for development of g...

  3. Abundant gene conversion between arms of palindromes in human and ape Y chromosomes.

    Nature 423(6942):873 (2003) PMID 12815433

    Eight palindromes comprise one-quarter of the euchromatic DNA of the male-specific region of the human Y chromosome, the MSY. They contain many testis-specific genes and typically exhibit 99.97% intra-palindromic (arm-to-arm) sequence identity. This high degree of identity could be interpreted a...
  4. The male-specific region of the human Y chromosome is a mosaic of discrete sequence classes.

    Nature 423(6942):825 (2003) PMID 12815422

    The male-specific region of the Y chromosome, the MSY, differentiates the sexes and comprises 95% of the chromosome's length. Here, we report that the MSY is a mosaic of heterochromatic sequences and three classes of euchromatic sequences: X-transposed, X-degenerate and ampliconic. These classes...
