Full-text available
The analysis of transcriptome data from non‐model organisms contributes to our understanding of diverse aspects of evolutionary biology, including developmental processes, speciation, adaptation, and extinction. Underlying this diversity is one shared feature, the generation of enormous amounts of sequence data. Data availability requirements in mo...

Article
Full-text available
Transcriptome and genome data from twenty stony coral species and a selection of reference bilaterians were studied to elucidate coral evolutionary history. We identified genes that encode the proteins responsible for the precipitation and aggregation of the aragonite skeleton on which the organisms live, and revealed a network of environmental sen...

We report the identification and characterization of two new members of a family of bilirubin-inducible fluorescent proteins (FPs) from marine chlopsid eels and demonstrate a key region of the sequence that serves as an evolutionary switch from non-fluorescent to fluorescent fatty acid-binding proteins (FABPs). Using transcriptomic analysis of two...

The amphinomid polychaete Hermodice carunculata is a cosmopolitan and ecologically important omnivore in coral reef ecosystems, preying on a diverse suite of reef organisms and potentially acting as a vector for coral disease. While amphinomids are a key group for determining the root of the Annelida, their phylogenetic position has been difficult...

Background: The amphinomid polychaete Hermodice carunculata is a cosmopolitan and ecologically important omnivore in coral reef ecosystems, preying on a diverse suite of reef organisms and potentially acting as a vector for coral disease. While amphinomids are a key group for determining the root of the Annelida, their phylogenetic position has bee...

Genomic and transcriptomic sequence data are essential tools for tackling ecological problems. Using an approach that combines next-generation sequencing, de novo transcriptome assembly, gene annotation and synthetic gene construction, we identify and cluster the protein families from Favia corals from the northern Red Sea. We obtained 80 million 7...
Article
Elucidation of the mechanisms behind cell death has brought with it an appreciation for viral strategies that target these pathways as a means to promote viral propagation while avoiding or slowing the host immune response. Several redundant anti-viral pathways have evolved in eukaryotic cells that are designed to minimize the damage due to viral i...

Project
Within the MetaSUB New Zealand programme, Dr Dada will be involved in molecular pathogen detection from samples collected from recreational bathing sites in New Zealand, as well as from other highly trafficked surfaces such as public vending systems for drinking water. These will be used to establish city-scale, baseline metagenomic DNA profiles that contextualize potentially harmful, as well as neutral, bacteria and organisms that interact directly and indirectly with the population.
Project
Developing a project related to discovery of microbial community structure living in deep layers of earth.
