Genomic resource development for shellfish of conservation concern.

Genomic resource development for shellfish of conservation concern.
Mol Ecol Resour. 2012 Dec 27;
Authors: Timmins-Schiffman EB, Friedman CS, Metzger DC, White SJ, Roberts SB
Abstract
Effective conservation of threatened species depends on the ability to assess organism physiology and population demography. To develop genomic resources to better understand the dynamics of two ecologically vulnerable species in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, larval transcriptomes were sequenced for the pinto abalone, Haliotis kamtschatkana kamtschatkana, and the Olympia oyster, Ostrea lurida.

Characterization of genes involved in ceramide metabolism in the Pacific oyster

Characterization of genes involved in ceramide metabolism in the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas
BMC Research Notes 2012, 5:502, DOI 10.1186/1756-0500-5-502
Authors: Timmins-Schiffman E, Roberts SB
Ceramide metabolism is an important part of the vertebrate response to a variety of environmental stressors.  Accumulation of ceramide, a lipid, can lead to stress-induced apoptosis.  We investigated the conservation of this pathway in invertebrates using the Pacific oyster as a model.
