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

[…] order to enrich the geriatric family caregiver support concept. By drawing from the breadth of expertise and knowledge in the participating geriatric care system, the description of the new Geriatric Family Companion’s job profile will be based on the actual needs of the setting in which the new job will operate. […]

[…] sband to do a lot more than I could. She could sit down with him and talk to him about things that he just says to me “Oh you are not listening”. So I think it is imperative to involve your immediate family. (Companion)We are together all the time. Sometimes the relationship gets strained because you are at the end of it. So, I think my daughter could get my husband to do a lot more than I could. […]
