      Background: Nuclear receptors have crucial roles in all metazoan animals as regulators of gene transcription. A wide range of studies have elucidated molecular and biological significance of nuclear receptors but there are ...
    • Filtering duplicate reads from 454 pyrosequencing data 

      Balzer, Susanne Mignon; Malde, Ketil; Grohme, Markus A.; Jonassen, Inge (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2013)
      Motivation: Throughout the recent years, 454 pyrosequencing has emerged as an efficient alternative to traditional Sanger sequencing and is widely used in both de novo whole-genome sequencing and metagenomics. Especially ...
    • The genome sequence of Atlantic cod reveals a unique immune system

Tina; Espelund, Mari; Nepal, Chirag; Previti, A. Christopher; Karlsen, Bård Ove; Moum, Truls; Skage, Morten; Berg, Paul Ragnar; Gjøen, Tor; Kuhl, Heiner; Thorsen, Jim; Malde, Ketil; Reinhardt, Richard; Du, Lei; Johansen, Steinar Daae; Searle, Steve; Lien, Sigbjørn; Nilsen, Frank; Jonassen, Inge; Omholt, Stig W; Stenseth, Nils Christian; Jakobsen, Kjetill Sigurd (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2011-09)
      Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) is a large, cold-adapted teleost that sustains long-standing commercial fisheries and incipient aquaculture. Here we present the genome sequence of Atlantic cod, showing evidence for complex ...
    • Genome wide analysis reveals genetic divergence between Goldsinny wrasse populations 

      Jansson, Eeva; Besnier, Francois; Malde, Ketil; André, Carl; Dahle, Geir; Glover, Kevin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background Marine fish populations are often characterized by high levels of gene flow and correspondingly low genetic divergence. This presents a challenge to define management units. Goldsinny wrasse (Ctenolabrus ...
    • Human-induced evolution caught in action: SNP-array reveals rapid amphi-atlantic spread of pesticide resistance in the salmon ecotoparasite Lepeophtheirus salmonis 

      Besnier, Francois; Kent, Matthew; Skern-Mauritzen, Rasmus; Lien, Sigbjørn; Malde, Ketil; Edvardsen, Rolf; Taylor, Simon; Ljungfeldt, Lina; Nilsen, Frank; Glover, Kevin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-10-26)
      Background: The salmon louse, Lepeophtheirus salmonis, is an ectoparasite of salmonids that causes huge economic losses in salmon farming, and has also been causatively linked with declines of wild salmonid populations. ...
    • Judging a salmon by its spots: Environmental variation is the primary determinant of spot patterns in Salmo salar 

      Jørgensen, Katarina Mariann; Solberg, Monica Favnebøe; Besnier, Francois; Thorsen, Anders; Fjelldal, Per Gunnar; Skaala, Øystein; Malde, Ketil; Glover, Kevin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-04-12)
      Background. In fish, morphological colour changes occur from variations in pigment concentrations and in the morphology, density, and distribution of chromatophores in the skin. However, the underlying mechanisms remain ...
    • Repeats and EST analysis for new organisms 

      Malde, Ketil; Jonassen, Inge (Journal article, 2008-01-18)
      Background Repeat masking is an important step in the EST analysis pipeline. For new species, genomic knowledge is scarce and good repeat libraries are typically unavailable. In these cases it is common practice to mask ...
