Comparison of PacBio RS single-molecule, realtime (SMRT) sequencing with Illumina HiSeq2000 technology reveals PacBio to be more accurate than Illumina in the de novo assembly of a chloroplast genome due to longer read lengths and lower GC bias.
Comparative transcriptome analysis of the Antarctic fish P. Borchgrevinki, identifies genes involved in cold adaptation and provides insight into the evolution of molecular mechanisms for fish survival in different water temperatures - an important feature during climate change.
A 15-week Ecological Metagenomics course at San Diego State University brought together 21 biology and computer science undergraduates to successfully sequence the sea lion genome, 14 bacterial genomes and 14 microbial community samples.
Based on mRNA expression data, BayMiR estimates the extent down-regulated genes are under the control of miRNAs and predicts the mRNA targets while considering the impact of other miRNAs.
Transcriptome profiling of wheat aphid alimentary canal identifies 5 novel and effective target genes for potential aphid control in wheat through a plant-mediated RNA interference (RNAi) strategy.

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.
