Comparative transcriptomics of geographic strains of catfishes exposed to chronic high temperature
Following acute and chronic thermal studies on physiologic differences between two separate geographic strains of Channel catfish and their hybrid crosses with Blue catfish, we took it a level deeper and examined the differential expression of gene transcripts and regulated pathways of these fish. Eighteen cDNA libraries from liver samples were sequenced to obtain 61 million reads per library. This paper is in press so results cannot be released yet.
