    • The record, and the subsequent Live Aid concerts, yoked the two men together as blood-oath crusaders against the famine in Ethiopia, the progenitors of popular culture's most decisive intervention into global politics.
    • We also wished to explore patterns of gene evolution in polyploid cotton, using as a comparative framework orthologs from the diploid progenitors.

    • Single-spore isolates were paired with their respective compatible mating types from the progenitor to establish progeny dikaryons.
    • There is, however, evidence of genome downsizing in polyploids relative to their diploid progenitors in some cases.
    • For example, the unicellular progenitors of plants underwent an important evolutionary step following the establishment of a second endosymbiotic relationship, resulting in the evolution of the plastid.
    • Wolfe offers an updated understanding of fraternities as social lockboxes far removed from their bawdy Animal House progenitors.
    • The person who donates DNA from a somatic cell is the progenitor, in that the child carries that person's DNA.
    • The radon gas will then also decay into radioactive solid particles, called radon daughters or radon progenitors.
    • This concern is evidenced by the very designation of the movement as Realism-a name significantly awarded by its own progenitors rather than by literary historians.
    • In some sense, every model organism needs to be developed and selected from its natural progenitors, and no organism will be an entirely ideal model.
    • We examined the segments of repeats of 16 strains, each descended from different wild progenitors.
    • The result is premature apoptosis (programmed cell death) of progenitors and failure of stem cells to mature and differentiate.
    • He is that eminent Victorian Charles Darwin, the progenitor of the theory of evolution.
    • The results from these studies are generally consistent with theoretical expectations of higher genetic diversity in tetraploids than their diploid progenitors.
    • Both international law and domestic legal norms in the Christian world had roots in an accepted morality and in natural law, and had common intellectual progenitors (including Grotius, Locke, Vattel).
    • These lines were derived as recombinants from the same progenitor, and their right ends are very likely the same.
    • That defiant self-contempt defines the Velvet's status as the first post-modern band and the progenitor of the entire punk/new wave movement.
    • Note that copy numbers in tetraploids were slightly less than double those in respective diploid progenitors.
    • The comparison of newly formed polyploids with their haploid progenitors has revealed that nascent polyploids have a defect in stationary-phase viability.
    • The domestication of plants from their wild progenitors has led to the production of a wide variety of crops that share a number of traits.
    • Indeed, some genes originating from different progenitors are expressed in specific tissues or at different developmental stages, as demonstrated in cotton.
    • Currently, six major tetraploid races are recognized and their diploid progenitors have been identified.
    • Boxes represent extant groups and their ancestral progenitors.
    • The progenitor of the mutant allele was assumed to be the parental allele that was closest in size to the mutant allele.
    • More significantly, this less-than-proportional increase in genome size in a polyploid species expected from the addition of its diploid progenitors appeared to be a widespread phenomenon in flowering plants.
    • Instead, she bestows a life and a self on modernity that seems to be independent of politics or its intellectual progenitors, and can therefore be whatever the author wants.
    • Debussy stands with Mussorgsky, Mahler, Reger, and Strauss among the great progenitors of Modernism.
