Broad phylogenomic sampling improves resolution of the animal tree of life
Long-held ideas regarding the evolutionary relationships among animals have recently been upended by sometimes controversial hypotheses based largely on insights from molecular data. These newExpand

Assaying genome-wide recombination and centromere functions with Arabidopsis tetrads.
During meiosis, crossover events generate new allelic combinations, yet the abundance of these genetic exchanges in individual cells has not been measured previously on a genomic level. To perform aExpand

Stages of embryonic development in the amphipod crustacean, Parhyale hawaiensis
Studying the relationship between development and evolution and its role in the generation of biological diversity has been reinvigorated by new techniques in genetics and molecular biology. However,Expand

TETRASPORE is required for male meiotic cytokinesis in Arabidopsis thaliana.
In flowering plants, male meiosis occurs in the microsporocyte to produce four microspores, each of which develops into a pollen grain. Here we describe four mutant alleles of TETRASPORE (TES), aExpand

Cell lineage analysis of the amphipod crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis reveals an early restriction of cell fates
In the amphipod crustacean, Parhyale hawaiensis, the first few embryonic cleavages are total and generate a stereotypical arrangement of cells. In particular, at the eight-cell stage there are fourExpand

De novo assembly and characterization of a maternal and developmental transcriptome for the emerging model crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis
BackgroundArthropods are the most diverse animal phylum, but their genomic resources are relatively few. While the genome of the branchiopod Daphnia pulex is now available, no other large-scaleExpand

Neuroanatomy of sea spiders implies an appendicular origin of the protocerebral segment
Independent specialization of arthropod body segments has led to more than a century of debate on the homology of morphologically diverse segments, each defined by a lateral appendage and a ganglionExpand

The genome of the crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis, a model for animal development, regeneration, immunity and lignocellulose digestion
The amphipod crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis is a blossoming model system for studies of developmental mechanisms and more recently regeneration. We have sequenced the genome allowing annotation ofExpand

MicroRNAs and essential components of the microRNA processing machinery are not encoded in the genome of the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi
BackgroundMicroRNAs play a vital role in the regulation of gene expression and have been identified in every animal with a sequenced genome examined thus far, except for the placozoan Trichoplax. TheExpand

Expression of otd orthologs in the amphipod crustacean, Parhyale hawaiensis
The arthropod head is a complex metameric structure. In insects, orthodenticle (otd) functions as a ‘head gap gene’ and plays a significant role in patterning and development of the anterior headExpand
