Limnoperna Fortunei : The Ecology, Distribution and Control of a Swiftly Spreading Invasive Fouling Mussel
A hybrid-hierarchical genome assembly strategy to sequence the invasive golden mussel, Limnoperna fortunei
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.

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.

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.

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)
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.
