Investigating the molecular basis of notochord loss in Molgula occulta via transcriptome sequencing
(Friday Harbor Labs, 2011-09)
Ascidian tsessile hermaphroditic filter-feeders found in marine environments (Huber et al ., 2000). Tunicates are urochordates (i.e.) because they possess the defining chordate structure, the notochord, in a larval tail that is reabsorbed upon metamorphosis. This tail is believed to benefit progeny by facilitating motility, ...
