TitleLake_Malawi_cichlid_RNA_sequencing
Study TypeTranscriptome Analysis
Abstract Lake Malawi cichlid fish went through a recent adaptive radiation event, which generated more than 500 closely related species in less than 200,000 years. With similar genomic background, the fishes differ dramatically in appearance and behaviour. As such they provide a superb system to study the mo .. [more]
