Comparative genomics based on massive parallel transcriptome sequencing reveals patterns of substitution and selection across 10 bird species.

Mol Ecol. 2010 Mar;19 Suppl 1:266-76.

Abstract

Next-generation sequencing technology provides an attractive means to obtain large-scale sequence data necessary for comparative genomic analysis. To analyse the patterns of mutation rate variation and selection intensity across the avian genome, we performed brain transcriptome sequencing using Roche 454 technology of 10 different non-model avian species.
