Population genomics of Populus trichocarpa identifies signatures of selection and adaptive trait associations.

Forest trees are dominant components of terrestrial ecosystems that have global ecological and economic importance. Despite distributions that span wide environmental gradients, many tree populations are locally adapted, and mechanisms underlying this adaptation are poorly understood. Here we use a...

AbstractFull Text

High-throughput transcriptome sequencing technology and its applications in Lepidoptera.

Transcriptome is the complete set of RNA transcripts in a specific type of cell or tissue under a certain stage or physiological condition. Next generation high-throughput sequencing technology has changed the study patterns of transcriptomics tremendously, from which RNA-sequencing (RNA-Seq) is...
