Background: Microbial communities have long been assumed to have functional redundancy, therefore characterizing community functional relationships has been the focus of microbial ecology in recent years. However, empirical investigations via time-series experiments to test functional redundancy hypothesis in diverse environments have remained a challenge in microbial ecology. In this study, we performed, first of a kind time series in situ reciprocal transplant experiments in two lakes (surface...

Microbial communities have long been assumed to have functional redundancy, but very few studies have tested this empirically. Here, we performed a time series in situ reciprocal transplant experiment in two lakes with disparate trophic states to empirically test for functional redundancy. We determined that the two lakes had different community compositions, and these did not change even after incubating in a different environment. However, functional attributes were different between read- and...

Background Growth traits can be used as indicators of adaptation to sub-optimal conditions. The current study aimed at identifying quantitative trait loci (QTL) that control performance under variable temperature conditions in chickens.

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are important in various biological processes, but very few studies on lncRNA have been conducted in birds. To identify IncRNAs expressed during feather development, we analyzed single-stranded RNA-seq (ssRNA-seq) data from the anterior and posterior dorsal regions during zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata) embryonic development. Using published transcriptomic data, we further analyzed the evolutionary conservation of IncRNAs in birds and amniotes. A total of 1,081 l...

Birds can be classified into altricial and precocial. The hatchlings of altricial birds are almost naked, whereas those of precocial birds are covered with natal down. This regulatory divergence is thought to reflect environmental adaptation, but the molecular basis of the divergence is unclear. To address this issue, we chose the altricial zebra finch and the precocial chicken as the model animals. We noted that zebra finch hatchlings show natal down growth suppressed anterior dorsal (AD) skin ...

Avian integumentary organs include feathers, scales, claws, and beaks. They cover the body surface and play various functions to help adapt birds to diverse environments. These keratinized structures are mainly composed of corneous materials made of α-keratins, which exist in all vertebrates, and β-keratins, which only exist in birds and reptiles. Here, members of the keratin gene families were used to study how gene family evolution contributes to novelty and adaptation, focusing on tissue morp...
