Targeting and translocation of proteins to the appropriate subcellular compartments is crucial for cell organization and function. Newly synthesized proteins are transported to mitochondria with the assistance of targeting sequences, which are complex, containing either an N-terminal presequence or a multitude of internal signals to target this organelle. Compared with experimental approaches, computational predictions provide

Finding gene copy number variation in a species is the cornerstone of genomic research. Most CNV finding tools and methods rely on comparing samples to the reference genome and on detecting certain signatures in the alignment data. These methods are robust and are significantly accurate, however they are not perfect. Different tools have various levels

Mediterranean river buffalo have recently undergone strong selection for increased quality and quantity of milk for mozzarella cheese production. Strong selection for traits such as milk production are often associated with increased inbreeding, leading to decreased genetic diversity and an increase in genetic disease prevalence. Transverse hemimelia (TH) is a congenital developmental abnormality characterized by
