Study Detail

Study TypeTranscriptome Analysis
Abstract In this study RNA was extracted from the olfactory mucosa of three individuals of four mammalian species: cow, macaque, marmoset and humans. The RNA was sequenced using the Illumina Hiseq2500 platform.
Description The olfactory gene repertoire is largely species-specific, shaped by the nature and necessity of chemosensory information for survival in each species' niche. We are intrigued by this interspecific variation and aim to investigate the olfactory transcriptome across mammals for evidence of selection .. [more]
