Data from: Effect of mutation mechanisms on variant composition and distribution in Caenorhabditis elegans

Ho-Yon Hwang & Jiou Wang
Genetic diversity is maintained by continuing generation and removal of variants. While examining over 800,000 DNA variants in wild isolates of Caenorhabditis elegans, we made a discovery that the proportions of variant types are not constant across the C. elegans genome. The variant proportion is defined as the fraction of a specific variant type (e.g. single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) or indel) within a broader set of variants (e.g. all variants or all non-SNPs). The proportions...

Data from: Substance P signalling in primary motor cortex facilitates motor learning in rats

Benjamin Hertler, Jonas Aurel Hosp, Manuel Buitrago Blanco & Andreas Rüdiger Luft
Among the genes that are up-regulated in response to a reaching training in rats, Tachykinin 1 (Tac1) - a gene that encodes the neuropeptide Substance P (Sub P) - shows an especially strong expression. Using Real-Time RT-PCR, a detailed time-course of Tac1 expression could be defined: a significant peak occurs 7 hours after training ended at the first and second training session, whereas no up-regulation could be detected at a later time-point (sixth training session)....

Data from: Measuring couple relationship quality in a rural African population: validation of a couple functionality assessment tool in Malawi

Allison Ruark, Rachel Chase, John Hembling, Valerie Rhoe Davis, Paul Clayton Perrin & Dorothy Brewster-Lee
Available data suggest that individual and family well-being are linked to the quality of women’s and men’s couple relationships, but few tools exist to assess couple relationship functioning in low and middle-income countries. In response to this gap, Catholic Relief Services has developed a Couple Functionality Assessment Tool (CFAT) to capture valid and reliable data on various domains of relationship quality. This tool is designed to be used by interventions which aim to improve couple...
