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 ...
Chromosome differentiation patterns during cichlid fish evolution
(Springer Nature, 2010-06-15)
Cichlid fishes have been the subject of increasing scientific interest because of their rapid adaptive radiation which has led to an extensive ecological diversity and their enormous importance to tropical and subtropical ...
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 ...
Comparative analysis reveals signatures of differentiation amid genomic polymorphism in Lake Malawi cichlids
(Springer Nature, 2008-07-10)
Cichlid fish from East Africa are remarkable for phenotypic and behavioral diversity on a backdrop of genomic similarity. In 2006, the Joint Genome Institute completed low coverage survey sequencing of the genomes of five ...
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. ...
