The combined application of next-generation sequencing platforms has provided an economical approach to unlocking the potential of the turkey genome. 

Current challenges in de novo plant genome sequencing and assembly

TLDR
The state of the art of assembly is assessed, the best practices for the community are reviewed, and the challenges of assembling plant genomes de novo remain challenging.

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.

Sequencing three crocodilian genomes to illuminate the evolution of archosaurs and amniotes

TLDR
The International Crocodilian Genomes Working Group (ICGWG) will sequence and assemble the American alligator, saltwater crocodile and Indian gharial genomes.

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

A new haplotype-resolved turkey genome to enable turkey genetics and genomics research

TLDR
A new high quality chromosome level turkey genome is presented, which will significantly contribute to turkey and avian genomics research and benefit the turkey breeding industry.

A Multi-Platform Draft de novo Genome Assembly and Comparative Analysis for the Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao)

TLDR
Application of a new whole-genome analysis of divergence involving all three species yielded prioritized candidate genes and noncoding regions for parrot traits of interest which were independently supported by the results of previous human GWAS studies.

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.

A SNP based linkage map of the turkey genome reveals multiple intrachromosomal rearrangements between the Turkey and Chicken genomes

TLDR
Turkey and chicken are shown to have a highly conserved genomic structure with a relatively low number of inter-, and intrachromosomal rearrangements between these two species.

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.

The sequence and de novo assembly of the giant panda genome

TLDR
Using next-generation sequencing technology alone, a draft sequence of the giant panda genome is generated and assembled, indicating that its bamboo diet might be more dependent on its gut microbiome than its own genetic composition.

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.

An integrated and comparative genetic map of the turkey genome

TLDR
An integrated genetic linkage map was developed for the turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) that combines the genetic markers from the three previous mapping efforts and could serve as a scaffold for a genome sequencing effort in the turkey.

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.

The repetitive landscape of the chicken genome.

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the high-copy repeats CR1, Galluhop, and Birddawg provided insight into two distinct genome dispersion strategies and exemplifies the power of the CBCS method to create representative databases for the repetitive fractions of genomes for which only limited sequence data is available.

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.

Evolution of the vertebrate Y RNA cluster

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.
