A hybrid-hierarchical genome assembly strategy to sequence the invasive golden mussel, Limnoperna fortunei
TLDR
The complete genome of the golden mussel is sequenced to understand the molecular basis of its invasiveness and search for ways to control it, and one of the best bivalve genome assemblies available is built using a cost-effective approach using Illumina paired-end, mate-paired, and PacBio long reads.
Gene Discovery through Transcriptome Sequencing for the Invasive Mussel Limnoperna fortunei
TLDR
The presence of toll-like receptors gives a first insight into an immune system that could be more complex than previously assumed and may be involved in the prevention of disease and extinction when population densities are high and the apparent lack of special adaptations to extremely low O2 levels is a target worth pursuing for the development of a molecular control approach.
Monoterpene biotransformation by Colletotrichum species
TLDR
This is the first report on the biotransformation of these terpenes by Colletotrichum spp.
Complete mitochondrial genome of the brown mussel Perna perna (Bivalve, Mytilidae)
TLDR
Perna perna does not present the doubly uniparental inheritance system (DUI) of mitochondria and does not encode the ATPase8 gene, in accordance with other Mytilidae data.
Gonad transcriptome of golden mussel Limnoperna fortunei reveals potential sex differentiation genes
TLDR
This study sequenced total RNA samples from male and female golden mussel gonads in the spawning stage and searched for genes related to the sex determination/differentiation pathways in bivalves and model species and investigated their expression profiles in the transcriptome of the golden mussels gonads.
A sustainable synthetic biology approach for the control of the invasive golden mussel (Limnoperna fortunei)
TLDR
The technical and economic feasibility of using a synthetic biology based approach to fight and control the invasive mussel Limnoperna fortunei in South American rivers and reservoirs is discussed.
