Study Detail

TitleGenome sequence of the canary (Serinus canaria)
Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract Songbirds play an important role as model species to answer questions of behavioural neurobiology and developmental biology. The Canary (S. canaria) is of special interest to these fields due to its ability to learn complex vocal motor patterns at adult age. Comparative genomics between non-songbird .. [more]
