The combined application of next-generation sequencing platforms has provided an economical approach to unlocking the potential of the turkey genome. 
B-G Gene Structure, Genetic Variation and Expression in the Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) Major Histocompatibility Complex
TLDR
This dissertation aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, which aims to provide real-time information about the response of the immune system to EMTs.
Next-generation sequencing strategies for characterizing the turkey genome.
TLDR
The most current sequence covers more than 95% of the turkey genome and should yield a much improved gene level of annotation, making it a valuable resource for studying genetic variations underlying economically important traits in poultry.
Rascaf: Improving Genome Assembly with RNA Sequencing Data
Rascaf simultaneously improves an assembly and its gene annotations Rascaf finds thousands of new contig connections in draft Fragaria genomes Rascaf is a highly accurate, efficient, and practical
Whole genome SNP discovery and analysis of genetic diversity in Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo)
TLDR
The turkey genome is much less diverse with a relatively low frequency of heterozygous SNPs as compared to other livestock species like chicken and pig.
Whole genome sequencing of the black grouse (Tetrao tetrix): reference guided assembly suggests faster-Z and MHC evolution
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that the chromosome X (Z) evolves faster than the autosomes and the data are consistent with the MHC regions being more liable to change than the genome average.
Progress towards a reference genome for sunflower
TLDR
This work reports on progress toward sequencing the 3.5 Gb genome of cultivated sunflower (Helianthus annuus), the most important crop in the family, and combines whole-genome shotgun sequencing using the Solexa and 454 platforms with the generation of high-density genetic and physical maps that serve as scaffolds for the linear assembly of whole- genome shot- gun sequences.
A comparative physical map reveals the pattern of chromosomal evolution between the turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) and chicken (Gallus gallus) genomes
TLDR
A BAC-based turkey-chicken comparative map provides novel insights into the evolution of avian genomes, a framework for assembly of turkey whole genome shotgun sequencing data, and tools for enhanced genetic improvement of these important agricultural and model species.
Second-Generation Linkage Maps for the Pacific Oyster Crassostrea gigas Reveal Errors in Assembly of Genome Scaffolds
TLDR
Higher density, second-generation, linkage maps are constructed from more than 1100 coding (exonic) single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), as well as 66 previously mapped microsatellite DNA markers, all typed in five families of Pacific oysters, to produce a consensus high-density linkage map containing 656 markers.
Fine mapping of complex traits in non-model species: using next generation sequencing and advanced intercross lines in Japanese quail
TLDR
The results reveal a significant association of duration of tonic immobility with a genomic region comprising the DMD (dystrophin) gene, confirming the efficiency of transcript and AFLP-sequencing for SNP discovery in a non-model species, and its application to the fine mapping of a complex trait.

The sequence and de novo assembly of the giant panda genome
TLDR
This corrects the article to show that the Higgs boson genome is a “spatially aggregating ‘spatiotemporal ’ organisation’, rather than a ‘cell-based’ organisation, which is more closely related to the immune system.
Large scale single nucleotide polymorphism discovery in unsequenced genomes using second generation high throughput sequencing technology: applied to turkey
TLDR
This work provides an efficient and cost-effective approach for the identification of thousands of high quality SNPs in species currently lacking a sequenced genome and applied this to turkey.
The origin and evolution of model organisms
TLDR
The phylogeny and timescale of life are becoming better understood as the analysis of genomic data from model organisms continues to grow and the emphasis on historical patterns is helping to bridge barriers among organism-based research communities.
Whole-genome sequencing and variant discovery in C. elegans
TLDR
This study sequenced a Caernohabditis elegans N2 Bristol strain isolate and compared the reads to the reference genome to characterize the data and to evaluate coverage and representation, demonstrating the utility of massively parallel short read sequencing for whole genome resequencing and for accurate discovery of genome-wide polymorphisms.
An analysis of the gene complement of a marsupial, Monodelphis domestica: evolution of lineage-specific genes and giant chromosomes.
TLDR
It is proposed that the higher G+C content of the Monodelphis X chromosome is a direct consequence of its small size relative to the giant autosomes, and it is attributed to high rates of female-specific recombination near the chromosomal ends and within the X chromosome, which act to sustain or increase G-C levels by biased gene conversion.
Genome sequence of the Brown Norway rat yields insights into mammalian evolution
TLDR
This first comprehensive analysis of the genome sequence of the Brown Norway (BN) rat strain is reported, which is the third complete mammalian genome to be deciphered, and three-way comparisons with the human and mouse genomes resolve details of mammalian evolution.

TLDR
Y RNAs, a relatively rarely studied group of related pol-III transcripts, is considered, which exhibits clade-specific tandem duplications, gene-losses, and rearrangements throughout tetrapod evolution.
