Genome-wide transcriptome analysis and genetic mapping elucidate how the content of γ-decalactone is naturally controlled in strawberry, and identify specific expression of the fatty acid desaturase FaFAD1 gene in ripe fruits, fully correlated with the presence of γ-decalactone.
RNAseq and analytical chemistry analyzes of the segregating progeny from strawberry cultivars, varying for presence-absence of volatile compounds, identify FaFAD1 as the gene controlling the peach flavor-conferring volatile γ-decalactone.
Cepaea nemoralis’ shell-forming proteome reveals an abundance of mollusc- and pulmonate-specific proteins, provides the first evidence that molluscs use independently evolved mechanisms to pigment their shells, and expands on our understanding of the proteins that mediate biomineralization.
Fruit transcriptomes from tomato plants colonized with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi were compared with fertilized controls and showed expression differences in ripening, stress response, and lipid and carbohydrate biosynthesis genes.
A novel search strategy for imprinted genes using genome-wide Chip-Seq data from Monodelphis domestica fibroblasts, identifies Meis1 as a marsupial-specific imprinted candidate and is suitable for further application.
Good communication between users and data generators and clear guidelines are key to the fair sharing of unpublished genomic data, as discussed by BMC Biology Editors in an editorial related to a recent policy update.
BMC Genomics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of genome-scale analysis, functional genomics, and proteomics.
It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.
