Paratya australiensis protein-coding transcriptome

A collection of DNA and deduced protein sequences corresponding to the protein-coding transcriptome of adult specimens of the freshwater atyid shrimp Paratya australiensis. The sequences are derived from specimens from a laboratory-based experiment involving the exposure of shrimp to drain water from a site affected by acidification due to oxidatio... more

Aquatic toxicology acid sulfate soils prawns schrimp gene expression RNA-Seq next-generation DNA sequencing

Total RNA was isolated from control specimens and specimens exposed to acid drainage water and mRNA was sequenced by a service provider using an Illumina HiSeq2000 instrument. Library preparation was strand-specific and sequences were generated using paired-end mode with 100 cycles. Putative transcripts were assembled in a de novo fashion (without a reference genome) using Trinity software (v. 2.0.6). Protein sequences were deduced using Transdecoder software (v. 2.0.1). Likely descriptions and functions were assigned using Blast2GO command-line v. 1.0.2.

Anu Kumar conceived the project, Deb Gonzago performed laboratory exposures, Peter Bain isolated RNA and performed all bioinformatics analyses, Adrienne Gregg validated selected changes in transcript abundance inferred from RNA-Seq using alternative methods (q-RT-PCR).
