Consortium for bivalve molecular and genetics research
Golden Mussel Genome CrowdfundingCome and see the first crowdfunding initiative to sequence a genome
Mytilus galloprovincialis transcriptomeThe european species has been the research model for many groups to study gene expression
Environmental monitoring using musselsMore than just tastefull, mussels help us understanging and knowing our environment
Invasive musselsMussels are among the most agressive invasive species
Perna perna, the brown musselThis tropical species can be found in Africa and South America
This organization was created during the 27th ESCPB (European Society for Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry) meeting in 2010 in Alessandria, Italy.
A group of researchers interested in the use of bivalves as a research model for environmental and biomedical purposes, decided to join efforts producing and assembling sequences from Sanger and NSG methods to elucidate the genome of the blue mussel Mytilus edulis. Since then, the initiative has grown and we are getting ready to host and give BLAST access to sequences from inumerous bivalves genome and transcriptome projects.
If you would like to access the data, please, hold tight, we will release it soon. If you want to contribute with DNA data, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know how to proceed.
