Decay of Sexual Trait Genes in an Asexual Parasitoid Wasp

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5381511
PMID: 28172869
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evw273

[…] ologs was enriched in one of the tissues related to sexual functions. This expression enrichment was determined by identifying the top blastp hit among N. vitripennis and D. melanogaster genes in the Waspatlas () and Flyatlas () databases, respectively. Expression data was available for testes in N. vitripennis and testes, accessory glands and spermathecae in D. melanogaster. We attempted to predi […]


Analysis of 5’ gene regions reveals extraordinary conservation of novel non coding sequences in a wide range of animals

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 4613772
PMID: 26482678

[…] into all possible 20-mers and used bowtie2 v2.0.5 [] to map each sequence to the N. vitripennis evidential gene transcriptome dataset [, ] supplemented with RNA-seq data (data available on http://www.waspatlas.com), as well as the Ensembl version of the official gene set OGS v1.2 augmented with the same data. A 20-mer was counted as transcribed if it mapped to either transcriptome, and the percent […]
