Quality assessment parameters for EST-derived SNPs from catfish
BackgroundSNPs are abundant, codominantly inherited, and sequence-tagged markers. They are highly adaptable to large-scale automated genotyping, and therefore, are most suitable for associationExpand

Genome-scale metabolic network modeling results in minimal interventions that cooperatively force carbon flux towards malonyl-CoA.
Malonyl-coenzyme A is an important precursor metabolite for the biosynthesis of polyketides, flavonoids and biofuels. However, malonyl-CoA naturally synthesized in microorganisms is consumed for theExpand
