IUCN Red List of Threatened Species

For example, PacBio DNA sequencing has improved assembly of the human [ 8 ], gorilla [ 9 ], loblolly pine [ 10 ], and avian genomes [ 11 ], while Iso-Seq has helped deepen our understanding of alternative splicing in the chicken [ 12 ], epnycteris bean [ 13 ], and maize [ 14 ] transcriptomes. We demonstrated that the PacBio long-read sequencing platform alone is sufficient to generate a comprehensive de novo assembled genome and transcriptome of an important bat species. In progress issue alert.

Female cave nectar bat Eonycteris spelaea with pup. The Cave nectar bat is found in primary forests and in disturbed and agricultural areas. Allen, ; Hutchins, et al. There is little available information on the home range of E.

More recently, it has been shown that bats may also serve as a new and excellent model to study aging, inflammation, and cancer, among other important biological processes.


To date, there are 14 draft bat genomes that are published and deposited in the National Center for Biotechnology Information NCBI Eidolon helvum, Eptesicus fuscus, Hipposideros armiger, Megaderma lyra, Miniopterus natalensis, Myotis brandtii, Myotis davidii, Myotis lucifugus, Pteropus alecto, Pteronotus parnellii, Pteropus vampyrus, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, Rhinolophus sinicus, Rousettus aegyptiacus ; Supplementary Table S1 [ 24—7 ].

To produce a reliable genome resource and more thoroughly annotated genome than that of other bats, we employed PacBio technology to sequence both the genome and transcriptome of the cave nectar bat also known as common nectar bat, dawn bat, common dawn bat, and lesser dawn bat [Fig. Ecosystem Roles The primary ecological function of E. To evaluate the similarities and differences of available bat genomes and their evolutionary relationship, it is necessary to compare the phylogenies of E.

The large number of unique transcripts recovered through Iso-Seq enabled us to make a general assessment of transcriptional complexity of the bat genome. Eonycteris spelaea was captured in Singapore at dusk using mist nets and transferred to clean customized bat bags for transportation.
