The genome of a songbird.
The zebra finch is an important model organism in several fields with unique relevance to human neuroscience. Like other songbirds, the zebra finch communicates through learned vocalizations, an ability otherwise documented ...
A molecular neuroethological approach for identifying and characterizing a cascade of behaviorally regulated genes.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2006-10-10)
Songbirds have one of the most accessible neural systems for the study of brain mechanisms of behavior. However, neuroethological studies in songbirds have been limited by the lack of high-throughput molecular resources ...
Comparative genomics reveals insights into avian genome evolution and adaptation.
Birds are the most species-rich class of tetrapod vertebrates and have wide relevance across many research fields. We explored bird macroevolution using full genomes from 48 avian species representing all major extant clades. ...
