Data from: Evolution of an insect immune barrier through horizontal gene transfer mediated by a parasitic wasp

Angela Amoresano, Paola Varricchio, Ilaria Di Lelio, Pietro Pucci, Luca Gianfranceschi, Anna Illiano, Silvia Caccia, Federica Astarita, David Horner & Francesco Pennacchio
Genome sequencing data have recently demonstrated that eukaryote evolution has been remarkably influenced by the acquisition of a large number of genes by horizontal gene transfer (HGT) across different kingdoms. However, in depth-studies on the physiological traits conferred by these accidental DNA acquisitions are largely lacking. Here we elucidate the functional role of Sl gasmin, a gene of a symbiotic virus of a parasitic wasp that has been transferred to an ancestor of the moth...

From the History of the Empire to World History: The Historiographical Itinerary of Christopher A. Bayly

Maurizio GRIFFO & Teodoro Tagliaferri
This volume is the outcome of a conference on the work of Christopher Bayly held in Naples on March 2016. At less than one year from his untimely death, the convenors called on a group of specialists in several disciplinary areas, on which Bayly has left his enduring mark, to collaborate on a first survey of the rich and complex scientific legacy of the English historian. Each essay focuses on one of the extraordinary succession...

NEAM Tsunami Hazard Model 2018 (NEAMTHM18): online data of the Probabilistic Tsunami Hazard Model for the NEAM Region from the TSUMAPS-NEAM project

Roberto Basili, Beatriz Brizuela, André Herrero, Sarfraz Iqbal, Stefano Lorito, Francesco Emanuele Maesano, Shane Murphy, Paolo Perfetti, Fabrizio Romano, Antonio Scala, Jacopo Selva, Matteo Taroni, Hong Kie Thio, Mara Monica Tiberti, Roberto Tonini, Manuela Volpe, Sylfest Glimsdal, Carl Bonnevie Harbitz, Finn Løvholt, Maria Ana Baptista, Fernando Carrilho, Luis Manuel Matias, Rachid Omira, Andrey Babeyko, Andreas Hoechner … & Foued Oueslati
The NEAM Tsunami Hazard Model 2018 (NEAMTHM18) is a probabilistic hazard model for tsunamis generated by earthquakes. It covers the coastlines of the North-East Atlantic, the Mediterranean, and connected Seas (NEAM). In this online data product, the hazard results are provided by hazard curves calculated at 2,343 Points of Interest (POI), distributed in the North-East Atlantic (1,076 POIs), the Mediterranean Sea (1,130 POIs), and the Black Sea (137 POIs) at an average spacing of ~20...

CITTÀ D’EUROPA E CULTURA URBANISTICA NEL MEZZOGIORNO BORBONICO: Il patrimonio iconografico della raccolta Palatina nella Biblioteca Nazionale di Napoli

Raffaele Ruggiero
[English]:After centuries of submission to the foreign rulers, between the eighteenth and the nineteenth century the South of Italy took a leading role in the European political landscape, on one hand absorbing in its culture the huge heritage of values and knowledge of those civilizations, on the other hand appealing to its own scientists, intellectuals and technicians’ fervid minds to achieve relevant international goals in the field of the public and urbanistic works. Kings, such...

Data from: Temperature and storage time strongly affect the germination success of perennial Euphorbia species in Mediterranean regions

Antonia Cristaudo, Stefania Catara, Antonio Mingo, Alessia Restuccia & Andrea Onofri
This study aims to explore the effect of environmental factors (temperature,light, storage time) on germination response and dormancy patterns in eight Mediterranean native wildplants, belonging to the Euphorbia L. genus. In detail, we considered E. amygdaloides subsp. arbuscula, E. bivonae subsp. bivonae, E. ceratocarpa, E. characias, E. dendroides, E. melapetala, E. myrsinites, E. rigida. We collected seeds from natural plant populations and performed germination assays in climatic chambers at seven constant temperatures (from 5 to...

Data from: The Solanum commersonii genome sequence provides insights into adaptation to stress conditions and genome evolution of wild potato relatives

Riccardo Aversano, Felice Contaldi, Maria Raffaella Ercolano, Valentina Grosso, Massimo Iorizzo, Filippo Tatino, Luciano Xumerle, Alessandra Dal Molin, Carla Avanzato, Alberto Ferrarini, Massimo Delledonne, Walter Sanseverino, Riccardo Aiese Cigliano, Salvador Capella-Gutierrez, Toni Gabaldón, Luigi Frusciante, James M. Bradeen & Domenico Carputo
Here, we report the draft genome sequence of Solanum commersonii, which consists of ∼830 megabases with an N50 of 44,303 bp anchored to 12 chromosomes, using the potato (Solanum tuberosum) genome sequence as a reference. Compared with potato, S. commersonii shows a striking reduction in heterozygosity (1.5% versus 53 to 59%), and differences in genome sizes were mainly due to variations in intergenic sequence length. Gene annotation by ab initio prediction supported by RNA-seq data...

Planning, Nature and Ecosystem Services

Carmela GARGIULO & Corrado Zoppi
This book collects the papers presented at INPUT aCAdemy 2019, a special edition of the INPUT Conference hosted by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Architecture (DICAAR) of the University of Cagliari. INPUT aCAdemy Conference will focus on contemporary planning issues with particular attention to ecosystem services, green and blue infrastructure and governance and management of Natura 2000 sites and coastal marine areas. INPUT aCAdemy 2019 is organized within the GIREPAM Project (Integrated...

Data from: Models of community-based primary care for epilepsy in low and middle income countries

Gagandeep Singh, Meenakshi Sharma, Anand Krishnan, Tarun Dua, Francesco D’Aniello, Sara Manzoni & Josemir Sander
Objective: To review systematically community-based primary care interventions for epilepsy in low and middle income countries to rationalize approaches and outcome parameters in relation to epilepsy care in these countries. Methods: A systematic search of PubMed, EMBASE, Global Index Medicus, CINAHL and Web of Science was undertaken to identify trials and implementation of provision of anti-seizure medications, adherence reinforcement and/or healthcare provider or community education in community-based samples of epilepsy. Data on populations addressed, interventions...
