Identification of Fast-Evolving Genes in the Scleractinian Coral Acropora Using Comparative EST Analysis

Iguchi, Akira; Shinzato, Chuya; Forêt, Sylvain; Miller, David J.


To identify fast-evolving genes in reef-building corals, we performed direct comparative sequence analysis with expressed sequence tag (EST) datasets from two acroporid species: Acropora palmata from the Caribbean Sea and A. millepora from the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Comparison of 589 independent sequences from 1,421 A. palmata contigs, with 10,247 A. millepora contigs resulted in the identification of 196 putative homologues. Most of the homologous pairs demonstrated high amino acid...[Show more]
