BACKGROUND MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression and thus play important roles in mammalian development. However, the comprehensive lists of microRNAs, as well as, molecular mechanisms by which microRNAs regulate gene expression during gamete and embryo development are poorly defined. The objectives of this study were to(More)
A necessary step in many metagenomic studies is to determine organisms present in a sample. Knowledge of the similarity among genomes of present organisms allows for more accurate mapping of high throughput sequencing reads to the correct genome for expression quantification. This study investigates current metrics of genome similarity as they relate to(More)
