Study Detail

TitleBombus terrestris (Buff-tailed or Large earth bumblebee) transcriptome sequencing study, using Roche 454-Titanium
Study TypeTranscriptome Analysis
Abstract cDNA was prepared from mRNA from five life cycle stages (larva, pupa, worker, male and gyne) and a total of 1,610,742 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) were generated using Roche 454 technology, increasing the sequence data available for this important species 50-fold. Overlapping ESTs were assembled i .. [more]
