Molecular changes associated with migratory departure from wintering areas in obligate songbird migrants.
TLDR
First comprehensive results on gene and protein expressions suggest that changes in molecular correlates of fatty acids transport and metabolism may aid the decision for migratory departure from wintering areas in obligate songbird migrants.
Photoperiodically driven transcriptome-wide changes in the hypothalamus reveal transcriptional differences between physiologically contrasting seasonal life-history states in migratory songbirds
TLDR
Results show life-history-dependent activation of hypothalamic molecular pathways involved in initiation and maintenance of key biological processes as early as on the first long day in migratory blackheaded buntings.
Transcriptome analysis provides genome annotation and expression profiles in the central nervous system of Lymnaea stagnalis at different ages
TLDR
This work provides the first age-specific transcriptome analysis and gene annotation of young, adult, and old L. stagnalis central nervous system (CNS) transcriptomes, and transcriptomic analyses reveal age- specific differentially expressed genes and enriched pathways in young,Adult, andOld CNS.
The role of ketogenesis in the migratory fattening of the northern wheatear Oenanthe oenanthe
TLDR
It is concluded that KB play a versatile role in wheatears' energy metabolism homeostasis and can adaptively provide carbon equivalents for lipogenesis, speeding up fuelling and act as a floodgate to avoid steatosis.
Transcriptome analysis provides genome annotation and expression profiles in the central nervous system of Lymnaea stagnalis at different ages
TLDR
The first age-specific transcriptome analysis and gene annotation of young, adult, and old L. stagnalis CNS transcriptomes are provided, which show significant changes in expression of critical genes involved in transcription factors, metabolisms, and signaling receptor and transduction.

TLDR
Whereas Linné aimed to classify all species of the authors' planet by a unique binomial Latin name, later generations of taxonomists and systematicists intended to place the taxa in a natural system according to their phylogeny, still scientists are on the way to find the ultimate “Avian Tree of Life”.
A Revised and Improved Version of the Northern Wheatear (Oenanthe oenanthe) Transcriptome
TLDR
This work presents an updated and more complete version of the transcriptome of a long-distance migrant, the Northern Wheatear (Oenanthe oenantshe), which has better sequencing coverage and is more representative of the species’ migratory phenotype.

Seasonal gene expression in a migratory songbird
TLDR
Several genes involved in cell adhesion, proliferation and motility were differentially expressed, suggesting that migration‐related changes are regulated by seasonal neural plasticity.
Gene expression in the brain of a migratory songbird during breeding and migration
TLDR
The results show that only few genes are differentially expressed between the subspecies, which suggests that the different migration strategies of the sub species might be governed by few genes, or that the expression patterns of those genes are time-structured or tissue-specific in ways, which the approach fails to uncover.
Hypothalamic and liver transcriptome from two crucial life‐history stages in a migratory songbird
TLDR
The hypothalamus and liver transcriptomes revealed genes involved in the regulatory and functional pathways between non‐migratory and migratory states and provide insights into mechanisms underlying homeostasis during seasonal changes that are conserved across most species, including humans.
De novo annotation of the transcriptome of the Northern Wheatear (Oenanthe oenanthe)
TLDR
A partial transcriptome of the Northern Wheatear is sequenced, a first step towards understanding the migratory phenotype regarding gene expression of a species that has become a model to study birds long-distance migrations.
A role for migration‐linked genes and genomic islands in divergence of a songbird
TLDR
Overall, the analysis supports the idea that genes linked to migration play an important role in divergence in migratory songbirds, but there is no compelling evidence that the observed genomic islands are facilitating adaptive divergence in migration behaviour.
Evolutionary aspects of migratory behavior in European warblers
TLDR
Using the Blackcap, the control of partial migration in a bird species was analyzed and genetic influences are very important and presumably dominant over environmental factors in the expression of migratory or sedentary behavior.
Endogenous control of fuelling in a migratory songbird
TLDR
This study cross-bred Northern wheatears from two populations known to accumulate different amounts of fuel in a common-garden setup, and measured their maximum fuelling as the difference between the lightest and heaviest body mass recorded over each year for 4 years or longer.
Neural control of daily and seasonal timing of songbird migration
TLDR
Cluster N, a nucleus in the telencephalon involved in the integration of geomagnetic cues, likely maintains functional connectivity with brain regions involved in timing songbird migration.
