Genome wide expert annotation of the epigenetic machinery of the plant parasitic nematodes Meloidogyne spp., with a focus on the asexually reproducing species

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5934874
PMID: 29724186
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4686-x

[…] rthoMCL version 2.0 under standard parameters [], and (ii) search of specific Pfam [] protein domains assigned by Interproscan []. To explore and analyze homology clusters we used a web server called Family-Companion [].Fig. 1As a second step, we created a repertory of known epigenetic factors and associated protein domains from the 6 model species. Basically, we recovered all known chromatin fact […]


Affectionate Interactions of Cats with Children Having Autism Spectrum Disorder

PMCID: 5862067
PMID: 29594156
DOI: 10.3389/fvets.2018.00039

[…] was clear that the specified cats varied considerably in behavior. The study has revealed the importance of having a cat that is inherently low in aggression, socially outgoing, and affectionate as a family companion for a child with ASD or that is typically developing. One such resource that explores purebreds and domestic shorthair and longhair cats in this regard has rated the breeds on scales […]


Control of primary metabolism by a virulence regulatory network promotes robustness in a plant pathogen

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5788922
PMID: 29379078
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-02660-4

[…] Homology groups of proteins sequences in 29 bacterial genomes downloaded on NCBI database (see Supplementary Table  for the list) were assigned using OrthoMCL via Family-Companion ( Sequence clustering was performed using a p-value cut-off of 1 × 10−5, and a percent match cut-off of 80. Sequences were aligned with Mafft […]


Actions of the fall prevention protocol: mapping with the classification of nursing interventions

PMCID: 5738961
PMID: 29267548
DOI: 10.1590/1518-8345.2394.2986

[…] . This multidisciplinary program was based on interventions that included assessment of the risk of falls through a standardized instrument, modifications to the environment, teaching to the patient, family/companion and team, and implementation of a prevention protocol in which patients with at least one were considered to be at high risk. Fallout educational material was provided to patients and […]


Contextual Exploration of a New Family Caregiver Support Concept for Geriatric Settings Using a Participatory Health Research Strategy

PMCID: 5750886
PMID: 29182535
DOI: 10.3390/ijerph14121467

[…] e earlier Caregiver’s Guide concept. In the Vade Mecum project, care professionals employed in one of the hospitals joining the project will receive special training to become a specialized Geriatric Family Companion, a new job profile as a hospital-based family caregiver support specialist. As a group, the Geriatric Family Companions will form a cross-border network of support experts, offering p […]
