Healthy aging and longevity are a growing topic of interest. They depend on the complex interplay between nuclear and mitochondrial DNA, the environment and the microbiota, that is, the whole set of bacteria living in the different parts of our body with their whole set of genes. Understanding this complex nature versus nurture balance is one of the greatest challenges in human genetics...
The Human Genome Research Center (HGRC-CEPID I) was initiated in 2000 with the main goal of increasing our basic knowledge and diagnosis of prevalent genetic diseases in the Brazilian population. The HGRC concentrated largely on Mendelian disorders, mainly neuromuscular, craniofacial, and mental disability. The scope was expanded in 2005 by incorporating stem-cell research, both as a t...
According whith the available archaeological evidence, the civiliization centers around the world have their antecedents in coastal populations with impressive signals of monumentality as an expression of territoriality and sedentary lifestyle. Despite the different trajectories, the evidence suggests that these societies were initially based on a predominantly marine subsistence, becom...
There is consensus that the HLA genes (Human Leucocyte Antigen), which encode proteins essential for adaptive immune response, evolve under balancing selection regime - which increases the genetic diversity compared to the expected under neutrality. However, questions concerning the time scale of the action of natural selection and its effects on population differentiation remain contro...
The most frequent cause of recessive hearing loss are mutations in GJB2 gene (connexin26, Cx26). Among the individuals with hearing loss with mutations in this gene, 10% to 50% present a single recessive mutation in heterozygosis, indicating that haplo-insufficiency of GJB2 may interact with other types of mutations in the same gene, in the neighbor gene GJB6, or even in other genes. Th...
