    Crab Acclimation to increasing ocean acidification levels

    Giant spider crabs experience an increase in expression of stress related genes at intermediate ocean acidification levels whilst this effect is attenuated at higher levels. This may leave the species vulnerable to increasing ocean acidification.

    Venom gland transcriptome in black widow spiders

    RNA-seq and proteomic analysis uncover 695 black widow venom gland-specific transcripts, including putative unknown toxins and a high diversity of associate proteins, suggestive of a rapid evolutionary expansion of the toxin arsenal in these spiders.

    Black widow silk gland transcriptome

    The multi-tissue transcriptome analysis of the Western black widow expands on the repertoire of genes involved in silk production and identifies 647 silk gland-specific transcripts, indicating a rich transcriptional program beyond the known fiber-forming spidroins.

    Sex-specific transcriptomic response in the oviduct

    The presence of either X- or Y-bearing spermatozoa elicits sex-specific transcriptomic responses in the separate oviducts of single female pigs, with a high representation of signal transduction and immune-related genes among the 501 transcripts consistently altered.
