An Atlas of annotations of Hydra vulgaris transcriptome

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5046195
PMID: 28185543
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-016-1172-9

[…] icult task, and without the help of biologists friendly tools, it appears to be a problematic case. By searching the literature, we observed that only two web resources are available: Compagen [] and Cnidbase []. On the one hand, Compagen basically stores all the raw and processed sequences from sponges, cnidarians, tunicates and lower vertibrates to retrospect evolutionary relationship among them […]

Are Hox Genes Ancestrally Involved in Axial Patterning? Evidence from the Hydrozoan Clytia hemisphaerica (Cnidaria)

PLoS One
PMCID: 2626245
PMID: 19156208
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0004231
call_split See protocol

[…] Homeodomain sequences from Clytia were aligned with sequences from a wide range of cnidarian and bilaterian homeodomains obtained by BLAST search in the GenBank and CnidBase databases. In the present study, the adopted strategy was to maximise taxonomic sampling among the cnidarians in order to have a representative view of their diversity and to allow discussion […]


Comparative genomics of the syndecans defines an ancestral genomic context associated with matrilins in vertebrates

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 1464127
PMID: 16620374
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-7-83

[…] nd Medina, M, Coral-Symbiodinium EST Project), Hydra magnipapillata [Bode et al., WashU Hydra EST project], and Nematostella vectensis [], were identified first by TBLASTN search of Stellabase [] and Cnidbase [] with known invertebrate syndecans and then confirmed and extended by BLASTN and TBLASTN searches of dbEST.
