  • Xenopus phylogeny revised: six new species

    Six new polyploid speciies added, plus one species is reinstated.

    The new classifications are made by using multiple sources of information, including DNA, recordings of vocalizations, CT scanning of internal anatomy, and chromosome analysis.

  • Epigenome reference map track hub

    Update:

    Track hubs now include trop v9.1 assebly. A collection of over 70 epigenome reference maps of Xenopus tropicalis early development has been released with the publication of “Embryonic transcription is controlled by maternally defined chromatin state” in Nature Communications.

  • On the Relationship of Protein and mRNA Dynamics in Vertebrate Embryonic Development

    Peshkin et al. published in Developmental Cell

    • A genome-scale resource of mRNA and protein expression for vertebrate embryogenesis
    • Temporal patterns of change in mRNA and protein abundance are poorly correlated
    • A simple kinetic model explains protein expression as a function of mRNA levels
    • Embryogenesis is driven by maternal protein dowry and tissue-specific transcription
