Data from: Genetic diversity among INERA maize inbred lines with single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers and their relationship with CIMMYT, IITA, and temperate lines

Abdalla Dao, Jacob Sanou, Sharon E. Mitchell, Gracen Vernon & Eric Y. Danquah
Background: Genetic diversity provides the capacity for plants to meet changing environments. It is fundamentally important in crop improvement. Fifty-nine local maize lines developed at INERA and 41 exotic (temperate and tropical) inbred lines were characterized using 1057 SNP markers to (1) analyse the genetic diversity in a diverse set of maize inbred lines; (2) determine the level of genetic diversity in INERA inbred lines and patterns of relationships of these inbred lines developed from...

Type, density, and healthiness of food-outlets in a university foodscape: a geographical mapping and characterisation of food resources in a Ghanaian university campus

Daniel O. Mensah, Godwin Yeboah, Michael Batame, Rob Lillywhite & Oyinlola Oyebode
Abstract Introduction Food environments are viewed as the interface where individuals interact with the wider food system to procure and/or consume food. Institutional food environment characteristics have been associated with health outcomes including obesity and nutrition-related non-communicable diseases (NR-NCDs) in studies from high-income countries. The objectives of this study were (1) to map and characterise the food-outlets within a Ghanaian university campus; and (2) to assess the healthiness of the food outlets. Methods Data collection...

Workplace violence and its associated factors among nurses working in public hospitals of eastern Ethiopia: a cross-sectional study

Henok Legesse, Nega Assefa, Dejene Tesfaye, Simon Birhanu, Seid Tesi, Fenta Wondimneh & Agumasie Semahegn
Abstract Background Workplace violence is one of the global health concerns. Although nurses are the backbone of the health care provision, they are highly subjected to workplace violence in healthcare. Nevertheless, there is a paucity of evidence on the extent of workplace violence against nurses in Ethiopia in general and Eastern Ethiopia in particular. Hence, this study aimed to assess the extent of workplace violence against nurses and its associated factors among nurse professionals working...

Incidence and determinants of maternal sepsis in Ghana in the midst of a pandemic

Charles Lwanga Noora, Adom Manu, Adolphina Addo-Lartey, Abdul Gafaru Mohammed, Donne Kofi Ameme, Ernest Kenu, Kwasi Torpey & Richard Adanu
Abstract Background Despite being preventable, maternal sepsis continues to be a significant cause of death and morbidity, killing one in every four pregnant women globally. In Ghana, clinicians have observed that maternal sepsis is increasingly becoming a major contributor to maternal mortality. The lack of a consensus definition for maternal sepsis before 2017 created a gap in determining global and country-specific burden of maternal sepsis and its risk factors. This study determined the incidence and...

Data from: Genetic and paleomodelling evidence of the population expansion of the cattle egret Bubulcus ibis in Africa during the climatic oscillations of the Late Pleistocene

Carlos Congrains, Antônio F. Carvalho, , Graeme S. Cumming, Dominic A. W. Henry, Shiiwua A. Manu, Jacinta Abalaka, Cristiano D. Rocha, Moussa S. Diop, Joãozinho Sá, Hamilton Monteiro, Lars H. Holbech, Francis Gbogbo & Silvia N. Del Lama
Increasing aridity during glacial periods produced the retraction of forests and the expansion of arid and semi-arid environments in Africa, with consequences for birds. Cattle egret (Bubulcus ibis) is a dispersive species that prefers semiarid environments and requires proximity to bodies of water. We expected that climatic oscillations led to the expansion of the range of the cattle egret during arid periods, such as the Last Maximum Glacial (LGM) and contraction of distribution during the...

Data from: Seasonal variation in food availability and relative importance of dietary items in the Gambian epauletted fruit bat (Epomophorus gambianus)

Kofi Amponsah-Mensah, Andrew A. Cunningham, James L.N. Wood & Yaa Ntiamoa-Baidu
1. The Gambian epauletted fruit bat (Epomophorus gambianus) is very common across a variety of West African habitats, but very little information is available on its feeding ecology or its contribution to ecosystem function. 2. We investigated seasonal variation in food availability and the relative importance of dietary items used by this species in a forest-savannah transitional ecosystem. Dietary items were identified from 1,470 samples of faecal and ejecta pellets which had been collected under...

Synoptic Forecasting Standard Operating Procedure for African SWIFT Testbed 3

Samantha Clarke & Samuel Owusu-Ansah
The following schedule was developed to match as closely as possible with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) currently used by the SWIFT partner countries operational forecasting centres (Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and Senegal). The SOP is for both East and West Africa forecasts however the times are different for each and so have been reflected in the timings given. East Africa shift timings are in blue and West Africa shift timings in red.

Comparison of cytokine concentration levels between COVID-19 symptomatic, asymptomatic patients, pre-COVID-19 health participants, COVID-19 pandemic health individuals and COVID-19 non-survivors. The cytokine concentration levels were measured from plasma of COVID-19 symptomatic (n = 29) and asymptomatic (n = 29), individuals, pre-COVID-19 health participants (100), COVID-19 pandemic health individuals (33) and COVID-19 non-survivors (2). The median quantity of the cytokines is shown by a horizontal line across...
