An EST resource for tilapia based on 17 normalized libraries and assembly of 116,899 sequence tags
(Springer Nature, 2010-04-30)
Large collections of expressed sequence tags (ESTs) are a fundamental resource for analysis of gene expression and annotation of genome sequences. We generated 116,899 ESTs from 17 normalized and two non-normalized cDNA ...
Mapping of pigmentation QTL on an anchored genome assembly of the cichlid fish, Metriaclima zebra
(Springer Nature, 2013-04-27)
Pigmentation patterns are one of the most recognizable phenotypes across the animal kingdom. They play an important role in camouflage, communication, mate recognition and mate choice. Most progress on understanding the ...
Evolution of cichlid vision via trans-regulatory divergence
(Springer Nature, 2012-12-26)
Phenotypic evolution may occur through mutations that affect either the structure or expression of protein-coding genes. Although the evolution of color vision has historically been attributed to structural mutations within ...
A high-resolution map of the Nile tilapia genome: a resource for studying cichlids and other percomorphs
(Springer Nature, 2012-06-06)
The Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) is the second most farmed fish species worldwide. It is also an important model for studies of fish physiology, particularly because of its broad tolerance to an array of environments. ...
