Evolutionary history of true crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura) and the origin of freshwater crabs.
TLDR
This work reconstructs the most comprehensive phylogeny of Brachyura to date using sequence data of six nuclear protein-coding genes and two mitochondrial rRNA genes from more than 140 species belonging to 58 families, and confirms that the "Podotremata," are paraphyletic.
Penaeid shrimp genome provides insights into benthic adaptation and frequent molting
TLDR
The authors provide a reference genome assembly, and show that gene expansion is involved in the regulation of frequent molting as well as benthic adaptation of the shrimp.
High-density linkage mapping aided by transcriptomics documents ZW sex determination system in the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis
TLDR
Using quantitative trait locus mapping of the gender phenotype, a ZW-ZZ sex determination system in Eriocheir sinensis is revealed and a high-density linkage map covering ~98.5% of the genome is presented, with 73 linkage groups corresponding to the haploid chromosome number.
Composition and genetic diversity of picoeukaryotes in subtropical coastal waters as revealed by 454 pyrosequencing
TLDR
Diversity of picoeukaryotes was higher in an oligomesotrophic bay than in a eutrophic bay, and the total diversity was underestimated at a genetic difference of ⩽2%.
The First Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS-1) of Ribosomal DNA as a Molecular Marker for Phylogenetic and Population Analyses in Crustacea
TLDR
Results show that ITS-1 is highly divergent among different crustaceans and could be an appropriate marker for molecular systematic studies at the species and population levels, although the presence of intragenomic variation needs to be taken into consideration.
