The genome sequence of Atlantic cod reveals a unique immune system
Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) is a large, cold-adapted teleost that sustains long-standing commercial fisheries and incipient aquaculture. Here we present the genome sequence of Atlantic cod, showingExpand
Phylogeny and evolution of the auks (subfamily Alcinae) based on mitochondrial DNA sequences.
The genetic divergence and phylogeny of the auks was assessed by mitochondrial DNA sequence comparisons in a study using 19 of the 22 auk species and two outgroup representatives. We compared moreExpand
Two group I ribozymes with different functions in a nuclear rDNA intron.
DiSSU1, a mobile intron in the nuclear rRNA gene of Didymium iridis, was previously reported to contain two independent catalytic RNA elements. We have found that both catalytic elements, renamedExpand
Mitogenome rearrangement in the cold-water scleractinian coral Lophelia pertusa (Cnidaria, Anthozoa) involves a long-term evolving group I intron.
Group I introns are genetic insertion elements that invade host genomes in a wide range of organisms. In metazoans, however, group I introns are extremely rare, so far only identified withinExpand
Genomic divergence between the migratory and stationary ecotypes of Atlantic cod
Atlantic cod displays a range of phenotypic and genotypic variations, which includes the differentiation into coastal stationary and offshore migratory types of cod that co‐occur in several parts ofExpand
Polyphyletic origin of the genus Physarum (Physarales, Myxomycetes) revealed by nuclear rDNA mini-chromosome analysis and group I intron synapomorphy
BackgroundPhysarales represents the largest taxonomic order among the plasmodial slime molds (myxomycetes). Physarales is of particular interest since the two best-studied myxomycete species,Expand
Organization of the mitochondrial genome of Atlantic cod, Gadus morhua.
The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from the Atlantic cod, Gadus morhua, was mapped using 11 different restriction enzymes and cloned into plasmid vectors. Sequence data obtained from more than 10Expand
A new nomenclature of group I introns in ribosomal DNA.
The current nomenclature system of group I introns (see Cech, 1988;Michel & Westhof, 1990) has become insufficient to distinguish and categorize the complex collection of more than 900 group IExpand

We have determined the complete sequence of an Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) mitochondrial genome. The 16,696-bp genome contains the same 37 mitochondrial structural genes found in all otherExpand
Temperature during early development has long-term effects on microRNA expression in Atlantic cod
BackgroundEnvironmental temperature has serious implications in life cycle of aquatic ectotherms. Understanding the molecular mechanisms of temperature acclimation and adaptation of marine organismsExpand
