One thousand plant transcriptomes and the phylogenomics of green plants (open access)

One thousand plant transcriptomes and the phylogenomics of green plants

Article describes the results of the One Thousand Plant Transcriptomes Initiative's efforts to sequence the vegetative transcriptomes of 1,124 species that span the diversity of plants in a broad sense (Archaeplastida), including green plants (Viridiplantae), glaucophytes (Glaucophyta) and red algae (Rhodophyta).

Altered expression of ionotropic L-Glutamate receptors in aged sensory neurons of Aplysia californica (open access)

Altered expression of ionotropic L-Glutamate receptors in aged sensory neurons of Aplysia californica

Article describes study in which mRNA expression of iGluR was quantified in two sensory neuron clusters of two cohorts of Aplysia californica (Aplysia) at both sexual maturity (~8 months) and advanced age (~12 months) in order to examine if changes in ionotropic L-Glu receptor (iGluR) transcription underlie reduced physiology8

Evaluation of a Chicken 600K SNP genotyping array in non-model species of grouse (open access)

Evaluation of a Chicken 600K SNP genotyping array in non-model species of grouse

This article tested the cross-species application of the Affymetrix 600K Chicken SNP array in five species of North American prairie grouse (Centrocercus and Tympanuchus genera). This study study provided evidence for successful cross-species application of the chicken SNP array in grouse which diverged ca. 37 mya from the chicken lineage. As far as the authors are concerned, this is the first reported application of a SNP array in non-passerine birds, and it demonstrates the feasibility of using commercial SNP arrays in research on non-model bird species.
