Wang, J P; Jemielity, S; Uva, P; Wurm, Y; Gräff, J P; Keller, L (2007). An annotated cDNA library and microarray for large-scale gene-expression studies in the ant Solenopsis invicta. Genome Biology, 8(1):R9.
Ants display a range of fascinating behaviors, a remarkable level of intra-species phenotypic plasticity and many other interesting characteristics. Here we present a new tool to study the molecular mechanisms underlying these traits: a tentatively annotated expressed sequence tag (EST) resource for the fire ant Solenopsis invicta. From a normalized cDNA library we obtained 21,715 ESTs, which represent 11,864 putatively different transcripts with very diverse molecular functions. All ESTs were used to construct a cDNA microarray.
