A phenotypically unique gorilla carries a private non-synonymous substitution in a transmembrane domain in SLC45A2, one of the candidate genes associated with the OCA4 class of albinism
Using a small RNA deep sequencing method on sexually immature and mature chicken ovaries differentially expressed miRNAs were identified and validated, including gga-miR-1a and gga-miR-21 thereby indicating a role in the follicular growth or ovulation mechanism.
204 years after Charles Darwin’s birth, sequencing of the genome of the Darwin’s Finch Geospiza magnirostris reveals over 13,000 predicted genes, of which two under positive selection may have contributed to beak morphology evolution, which so interested Darwin.
The draft genome of the rubber tree Hevea brasiliensis is almost 80% repetitive DNA with 12.7% of genes models identified being unique to this species, including key rubber biosynthesis and disease resistance genes

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.
