Next-generation pyrosequencing of gonad transcriptomes in the polyploid lake sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens): the relative merits of normalization and rarefaction in gene discovery
BackgroundNext-generation sequencing technologies have been applied most often to model organisms or species closely related to a model. However, these methods have the potential to be valuable inExpand

Microsatellite mutation rates in the eastern tiger salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum tigrinum) differ 10-fold across loci
Microsatellites are commonly used for mapping and population genetics because of their high heterozygosities and allelic variability (i.e., polymorphism). Microsatellite markers are generally moreExpand

Parentage analysis detects cryptic precapture dispersal in a philopatric rodent
Locating birthplaces using genetic parentage determination can increase the precision and accuracy with which animal dispersal patterns are established. We re‐analyse patterns of movement away fromExpand

Multiple molecular approaches yield no evidence for sex-determining genes in lake sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens)
Summary Common DNA-based sexing assays have been widely used for the conservation and management of mammals and birds. However, many fishes do not have genetic sex determination and in those that do,Expand

High-definition seismic for Channel Tunnel marine route
Abstract The sub-seabed investigations for the Channel Tunnel in 1986–1988 included major marine geophysical surveys as well as 11 deep boreholes in which geophysical techniques were also employed.Expand

Insights into the mating habits of the tiger salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum tigrinum) as revealed by genetic parentage analyses
Among urodeles, ambystomatid salamanders are particularly amenable to genetic parentage analyses because they are explosive aggregate breeders that typically have large progeny arrays. Such analysesExpand

The quantification of spermatozoa by real‐time quantitative PCR, spectrophotometry, and spermatophore cap size
Many animals, such as crustaceans, insects, and salamanders, package their sperm into spermatophores, and the number of spermatozoa contained in a spermatophore is relevant to studies of sexualExpand

Polymorphism of Alternative Splicing of Major Histocompatibility Complex Transcripts in Wild Tiger Salamanders
Alternative splicing (AS) of mRNA transcripts is increasingly recognized as a source of transcriptome diversity. To date, most AS studies have focused either on comparisons across taxa or onExpand
