Study Detail

TitleComparative transcriptome analysis between alga-free and alga-bearing Paramecium bursaria
Study TypeTranscriptome Sequencing
Abstract In order to elucidate the molecular mechanism of endosymbiosis (secondary symbiosis) establishment, gene expressions obtained by transcriptome analyses in alga-free and algae-bearing Paramecium bursaria cells were compared.
Description By mass-decoding cDNA using a next-generation DNA sequencer (HiSeq 2000 system by Illumina), attempts to identify the genes of P. bursaria involved in establishing endosymbiosis were made through comprehensive comparisons of mRNA. Timings of the gene expressions that are predicted to be involved in .. [more]
