  • Egger, Bernhard; Bachmann, Lutz; Fromm, Bastian (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    Background To date, mitochondrial genomes of more than one hundred flatworms (Platyhelminthes) have been sequenced. They show a high degree of similarity and a strong taxonomic bias towards parasitic lineages. ...

    Cryptic species could represent a substantial fraction of biodiversity. However, inconsistent definitions and taxonomic treatment of cryptic species prevent informed estimates of their contribution to biodiversity and ...
  • Lindqvist, Charlotte; Roy, Tilottama; Lydersen, Christian; Kovacs, Kit M; Aars, Jon; Wiig, Øystein; Bachmann, Lutz (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    Background The population size of Atlantic walruses (Odobenus rosmarus rosmarus) is depleted relative to historical abundance levels. In Svalbard, centuries of over-exploitation brought the walrus herds to ...

(Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    The evolutionary history of the wolf-like canids of the genus Canis has been heavily debated, especially regarding the number of distinct species and their relationships at the population and species level [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...
  • Fromm, Bastian; David Harris, Philip; Bachmann, Lutz (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2011)
    Background Describing and evaluating miRNA inventories with Next Generation Sequencing is a goal of scientists from a wide range of fields. It requires high purity, high quality, and high yield RNA extractions ...
  • Anmarkrud, Jarl A; Kleven, Oddmund; Bachmann, Lutz; Lifjeld, Jan T (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2008)
    Background Microsatellites are frequently used genetic markers in a wide range of applications, primarily due to their high length polymorphism levels that can easily be genotyped by fragment length analysis. ...
  • Grond, Koost; Piecha, Magdalena; Hahn, Christoph; Wiig, Øystein; Bachmann, Lutz (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    The endangered Spitsbergen stock of bowhead whales (Balaena mysticetus) has once been large with up to estimated 100,000 individuals. Genetic diversity of the extant Spitsbergen stock is unknown. We present 10 complete ...
  • Martinsen, Lene; Venanzetti, Federica; Johnsen, Arild; Sbordoni, Valerio; Bachmann, Lutz (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2009)
    Background Non-coding satellite DNA (satDNA) usually has a high turn-over rate frequently leading to species specific patterns. However, some satDNA families evolve more slowly and can be found in several ...
  • Tschá, Marcel K.; Bachmann, Lutz; Abilhoa, Vinicius; Boeger, Walter A (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / SubmittedVersion, 2017)
    The Atlantic coast of South America is characterized by a great diversity and endemism of fishes. Past eustatic changes that promoted cycles of isolation, expansion, and connection of coastal catchments are considered ...

    Background In the present pilot study we applied recently published protocols for detecting Mycobacterium tuberculosis in human remains. We screened long bones from an 18th century cemetery and skulls from ...
  • Martinsen, Lene; Johnsen, Arild; Venanzetti, Federica; Bachmann, Lutz (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2010)
    Background The great variety in sequence, length, complexity, and abundance of satellite DNA has made it difficult to ascribe any function to this genome component. Recent studies have shown that satellite ...
