Cryptophyte and chlorarachniophyte algae are transitional forms in the widespread secondary endosymbiotic acquisition of photosynthesis by engulfment of eukaryotic algae. Unlike most secondary plastid-bearing algae, miniaturized versions of the endosymbiont nuclei (nucleomorphs) persist in cryptophytes and chlorarachniophytes. To determine why, and to(More)
A comprehensive transcriptome assembly for pigeonpea has been developed by analyzing 128.9 million short Illumina GA IIx single end reads, 2.19 million single end FLX/454 reads, and 18 353 Sanger expressed sequenced tags from more than 16 genotypes. The resultant transcriptome assembly, referred to as CcTA v2, comprised 21 434 transcript assembly contigs(More)
DNA methylation is a type of chemical modification of DNA that adds a methyl group to DNA at the fifth carbon of the cytosine pyrimidine ring. In normal cells, methylation of CpG dinucleotides is extensively found across the genome. However, specific DNA regions known as the CpG islands, short CpG dinucleotide-rich stretches (500 bp - 2000bp), are commonly(More)
