Structure and decay of a proto-Y region in Tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus
(BioMed Central, 2014)
Sex-determination genes drive the evolution of adjacent chromosomal regions. Sexually antagonistic selection favors the accumulation of inversions that reduce recombination in regions adjacent to the sex-determination gene. ...
An improved genome reference for the African cichlid, Metriaclima zebra
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background: Problems associated with using draft genome assemblies are well documented and have become more pronounced with the use of short read data for de novo genome assembly. We set out to improve the draft genome ...
Comparative analysis of a sex chromosome from the blackchin tilapia, Sarotherodon melanotheron
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Background: Inversions and other structural polymorphisms often reduce the rate of recombination between sex chromosomes, making it impossible to fine map sex-determination loci using traditional genetic mapping techniques. ...
Comparative physical maps derived from BAC end sequences of tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)
Background: The Nile tilapia is the second most important fish in aquaculture. It is an excellent laboratory model, and is closely related to the African lake cichlids famous for their rapid rates of speciation. A suite ...
Integrated analysis of miRNA and mRNA expression profiles in tilapia gonads at an early stage of sex differentiation
(Springer Nature, 2016-05-04)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) represent a second regulatory network that has important effects on gene expression and protein translation during biological process. However, the possible role of miRNAs in the early stages of fish sex ...
A high quality assembly of the Nile Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) genome reveals the structure of two sex determination regions
(Springer Nature, 2017-05-02)
Tilapias are the second most farmed fishes in the world and a sustainable source of food. Like many other fish, tilapias are sexually dimorphic and sex is a commercially important trait in these fish. In this study, we ...
