Addressing aspiring migrants' dreams planning to move from Khouribga (Morocco) to Italy , I will focus on the construction of the imagined "away from home" and "back home" versus an experienced and symbolized "staying", and I will point out how they converge. A context of crisis perceived inside Moroccan society, concerning lack of working opportunities and diffuse nepotism, pushes many people of Khouribga to imagine a life elsewhere. The steady contact with images and goods coming from Italy presents this country as a land where to fulfil oneself. An imagined life becomes a migration project, though one which seems to turn into a trip "without moving". To face these dynamics, the local context shapes its actions as to let people go away by, actually, forcing them to realize their trip "at home". [less ▲]

As part of a whole genome scan undertaken to detect quantitative trait loci (QTL) affecting milk yield and composition, we have genotyped a granddaughter design comprising 1152 sons for six microsatellite markers spanning bovine chromosome 20. An analysis performed across families provided strong evidence (experiment-wise P-values < 0.01) for the presence of a QTL affecting primarily protein percentage towards the telomeric end of the chromosome. A founder sire, shown in a previous study to segregate for a similar QTL in the corresponding chromosome region, was characterized by 29 and 57 sons and maternal grandsons, respectively, in the present design. Sorting corresponding sons and grandsons by paternal or grandpaternal allele provided significant evidence for the segregation of a QTL on chromosome 20. Altogether these results confirm the location of a QTL affecting milk production on bovine chromosome 20. [less ▲]

Polyphenols have favorable antioxidant potential on human health suggesting that their high content in apple is responsible for the beneficial effects of apple consumption. They are also related to the quality of ciders as they predominantly account for astringency, bitterness, color and aroma. Five groups of phenolic compounds are described in the apple fruit: flavanols, hydroxycinnamic acids, dihydrochalcones, flavonols and anthocyanins. So far, only two studies have been published on the genetic basis of the phenolic content of dessert apples. As cider apples are commonly described to be much more concentrated in phenolic compounds than dessert varieties, the present study focuses on a cider apple progeny. 32 compounds belonging to the five groups were identified and quantified by HPLC-UV and UHPLC-UV-MS/MS in fruit extracts and juices. 53 QTL controlling phenolic compounds concentration were detected on nine linkage groups (LG) on the integrated linkage map, for all phenolic groups except anthocyanins. QTL clusters located on LG1, 12, 14, 15 and 17 were stable across the year or the studied material. QTL detected on LG1, 14 and 17 for quercitrin, p-coumaroylquinic acid, rutin and chlorogenic acid confirmed results of previous studies. However, no significant QTL was obtained on the LG16 where a major locus for flavanols was previously located. With the two previous studies, this study shows the diversity of genomic regions controlling traits of interest in apple. [less ▲]

With the availability of dense, highly informative marker maps, it has recently become feasible to map genes (Quantitative Trait Loci or QTL) accounting for part of the heritability of continuously distributed traits in experimental crosses as well as outbred populations. QTL mapping efforts have almost invariably revealed a limited number of loci with effects of a magnitude clearly departing from the predictions of the infinitesimal model (a model introduced to facilitate mathematical treatment of quantitative traits rather than to truly reflect their underlying biology). As most experimental designs would have limited detection power, which could lead to an overestimation of the identified gene effects, interpretation of results from QTL mapping studies must be viewed with caution. However, numerous independent confirmation studies leave little doubt that most quantitative traits indeed involve a limited suite of loci with major effect. This assertion seems to hold not only for QTL mapped in crosses between divergent lines, but—more importantly—for QTL segregating in outbred populations as well (for review, see Paterson 1995). Despite the sometimes unexpected magnitude of the identified QTL effects, the lack of simple correspondence between genotype and phenotype in complex trait analysis precludes the unambiguous identification of recombinant individuals. This may limit the achievable mapping resolution of QTL, posing a serious threat to the efficacy of positional (candidate) cloning for QTL considerably. QTL mapping efforts, whether performed in pedigrees or by exploiting linkage disequilibrium, are likely to leave geneticists with a portion of the genome that contains tens if not hundreds of genes and many DNA sequence polymorphisms to examine to identify the causal variant. Mutations causing monogenic inherited diseases are often destructive enough to leave little doubt about their causality. Even if the functional consequences of such mutations were less transparent, demonstration of a perfect correspondence between genotype and … [less ▲]

A whole genome scan was undertaken in a granddaughter design comprising 1158 progeny-tested bulls in order to map QTL influencing milk yield and composition. In this paper we report the identification of a locus on the centromeric end of bovine Chromosome (Chr) 14, with major effect on fat and protein percentage as well as milk yield. The genuine nature of this QTL was verified using the grand2-daughter design, that is, by tracing the segregating QTL alleles from heterozygous grandsires to their maternal grandsons and confirming the predicted QTL allele substitution effect.

Les dernières recommandations américaines concernant la prise en charge des dyslipidémies en prévention cardiovasculaire ont soulevé de nombreuses questions par leurs différences avec nos approches habituelles. Entre autres, elles ont éradiqué la nécessité de « cible » de LDL-C à atteindre en fonction du niveau de risque cardiovasculaire et ont proposé plutôt une stratégie basée sur l’intensité de la réduction relative du LDL-C. L’examen critique et la comparaison des recommandations font apparaitre, toutefois, plus de similitudes que de différences, tout en encourageant à repenser certains aspects de notre pratique et à raviver notre motivation pour le plus grand bien des patients.

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to undertake some key elements provided by the Genetic Criticism (fr. “Critique génétique”) about the treatment of modern manuscripts, and more specifically the object it defines as “rough draft” (fr. “brouillon”). After a brief introduction, we will discuss the difference between “modern” and “ancient” (or “medieval”) manuscripts (§ 3), the concept of “rough draft” as “semiotic object” (§ 4), the relevance of a genetic approach on Saussure’s unpublished notes (§ 5) and, finally, the different editing possibilities of the aforementioned manuscripts (§ 6).
