BACKGROUND: Molecular diagnostics in the genetic myopathies often requires testing of the largest and most complex transcript units in the human genome (DMD, TTN, NEB). Iteratively targeting single genes for sequencing has traditionally entailed high costs and long turnaround times. Exome sequencing has begun to supplant single targeted genes, but there are concerns regarding coverage and needed depth of the very large and complex genes that frequently cause myopathies. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate efficiency of next-generation sequencing technologies to provide molecular diagnostics for patients with previously undiagnosed myopathies...

Following our previous contributions to the knowledge of Chinese Batraxis Reitter (Wang et al. 2016; Wang & Yin 2016), here we describe two more species from Yunnan, and provide new collecting records for two previously described species, based on the newly available material deposited in the National Museum, Prague, Czech Republic. The number of Batraxis species now reaches 63 species, 19 of them are known to occur in China.

The genus Phaeaphodius Reitter, 1892 (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Aphodiinae) is revised and considered to consist of 12 species. A key to species and diagnosis of each species are given to fascilitate identification. Lectotypes are designated for A. costalis Gebler, 1848, A. sibiricus Harold, 1863, A. aeger Sharp, 1878, and A. solskyi Harold, 1871.

Fossils of two tribes of the ant-like stone beetles, previously unknown in Eocene deposits, are recorded, based on inclusions in Baltic amber. Well-preserved specimens of Chevrolatia sp. (Chevrolatiini) and Cephennodes sp. (Cephenniini) are described, but the species lack reliable diagnostic characters and remain unnamed. This is the first record of a fossil of Chevrolatiini, an extant tribe that includes only one genus, Chevrolatia Jacquelin du Val, distributed in the Holarctic, Mexico, West Palaearctic and Afrotropical regions...

Pseudocephennium auriculatum sp. n. is described, based on a male specimen collected in north-western Venezuela. New findings of Pseudocephennium maximum Jałoszyński and P. araguanum Jałoszyński, so far known only from holotypes, are reported. The aedeagi of newly found specimens have the endophallic structures extruded to various extent which makes it possible to identify movable components of the internal aedeagal armature.

BACKGROUND: Maternal CD4+ cell microchimerism may be greater after caesarean section compared to spontaneous vaginal delivery and could cause mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) in HIV-exposed newborns. AIMS: To evaluate maternal CD4+ cell microchimerism in HIV-exposed newborns after spontaneous vaginal delivery or caesarean section. STUDY DESIGN AND SUBJECTS: In this prospective single-centre study, neonates whose mothers were infected with HIV and had normal MTCT risk according to the German Austrian Guidelines were considered for study enrolment...

Much of the data used to measure conflict is extracted from news reports. This is typically accomplished using either expert coders to quantify the relevant information or machine coders to automatically extract data from documents. Although expert coding is costly, it produces quality data. Machine coding is fast and inexpensive, but the data are noisy. To diminish the severity of this tradeoff, we introduce a method for analyzing news documents that uses crowdsourcing, supplemented with computational approaches...
