The African Coelecanth genome provides insights into tetrapod evolution
(Macmillan Publishers, 2013)
The discovery of a living coelacanth specimen in 1938 was remarkable, as this lineage of lobe-finned fish was thought to have become extinct 70 million years ago. The modern coelacanth looks remarkably similar to many of ...
Inferring bona fide transfrags in RNA-Seq derived-transcriptome assemblies of non-model organisms
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background: De novo transcriptome assembly of short transcribed fragments (transfrags) produced from sequencing-by-synthesis technologies often results in redundant datasets with differing levels of unassembled, partially ...
Taste and odorant receptors of the coelecanth- a gene repertoire in transition
G-protein coupled chemosensory receptors (GPCR-CRs) aid in the perception of odors and tastes in vertebrates. So far, six GPCR-CR families have been identified that are conserved in most vertebrate species. Phylogenetic ...
A glance at quality score: implication for de novo transcriptome reconstruction of Illumina reads
Downstream analyses of short-reads from next-generation sequencing platforms are often preceded by a pre-processing step that removes uncalled and wrongly called bases. Standard approaches rely on their associated base ...
