High-abundance mRNAs in Apis mellifera: Comparison between nurses and foragers

Liu, Fang; Li, Wenfeng; Li, Zhiguo; Zhang, Shao Wu; Chen, Shenglu; Su, Songkun


A large volume of honey bee (Apis mellifera) tag-seq was obtained to identify differential gene expression via Solexa/lllumina Digital Gene Expression tag profiling (DGE) based on next generation sequencing. In total, 4,286,250 (foragers) and 3,422,327 (nurses) clean tags were sequenced, 24,568 (foragers) and 13,134 (nurses) distinct clean tags could not be match to the reference database, and 7508 and 6875 mapped genes were detected in foragers and nurses respectively. 7045 genes were found...[Show more]
