Background

Amorphophallus is a genus of perennial plants widely distributed in the tropics or subtropics of West Africa and South Asia. Its corms contain a high level of water-soluble glucomannan; therefore, it has long […]

Assembling the coelacanth genome

First, we constructed the reference coelacanth draft genome from one of the Tanzanian specimens (TCC041-004, gender unknown; Nikaido et al. 2011), which was recovered from the body cavity of its mother (coelacanths give birth to fully formed offspring; […]
