    Citation: BMC Genomics 2016 17(Suppl 8):743
  2. The development of large-scale technologies for quantitative transcriptomics has enabled comprehensive analysis of the gene expression profiles in complete genomes. RNA-Seq allows the measurement of gene expre...

    Citation: BMC Genomics 2016 17(Suppl 8):727
  6. The described species from the Metarhizium genus are cosmopolitan fungi that infect arthropod hosts. Interestingly, while some species infect a wide range of hosts (host-generalists), other species infect only a ...
