The article presents case study of a 16-month-old child who was presented with diabetic ketoacidosis, was reported to be with a genetically confirmed thiamine-responsive megaloblastic anaemia (TRMA) syndrome. It was detected with sensorineural deafness and mutation of homozygous pathogenic variant in exon 2 of the SLC19A2 gene due to child's parents being from consanguineous families.

    As water demand for agriculture exceeds water availability, cropping systems need to become more efficient in water usage, such as deployment of cultivars that sustain yield under drought conditions. Soybean cultivars differ in how quickly they wilt during water-deficit stress, and this trait...

    Background: In pedigreed populations with a major gene segregating for a quantitative trait, it is not clear how to use pedigree, genotype and phenotype information when some individuals are not genotyped. We propose to consider gene content at the major gene as a second trait correlated to the...
