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 ...
Chromosomal-level assembly of the Asian seabass genome using long sequence reads and multi-layered scaffolding
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
We report here the ~670 Mb genome assembly of the Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer), a tropical marine teleost. We used long-read sequencing augmented by transcriptomics, optical and genetic mapping along with shared ...
Virome assembly and annotation: A surprise in the Namib Desert
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2017)
Sequencing, assembly, and annotation of environmental virome samples is challenging. Methodological biases and differences in species abundance result in fragmentary read coverage; sequence reconstruction is further ...
An integrated and comparative approach towards identification, characterization and functional annotation of candidate genes for drought tolerance in sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench)
(BioMed Central, 2017)
BACKGROUND: Drought is the most disastrous abiotic stress that severely affects agricultural productivity worldwide. Understanding the biological basis of drought-regulated traits, requires identification and an in-depth ...
