The oyster genome reveals stress adaptation and complexity of shell formation. Nature 490:49-52 (4 October 2012).This is the publication of the genome sequence of the Pacific oyster. Hedgecock and Davis supplied the fourth-generation inbred oyster whose genome was sequenced. Hedgecock, a co-author, confirmed the pedigree of the oyster, using genetic markers, and provided advice on the overall project, the rationale for which was established by Hedgecock et al (2005, below). The development of this inbred line was made possible by grants from the USDA.
