Hedgecock, D., J.-Z. Lin, S. DeCola, C. Haudenschild, E. Meyer, D. T. Manahan, and B. Bowen. 2007. Transcriptomic analysis of growth heterosis in larval Pacific oysters (Crassostrea gigas). Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, U.S.A. 104:2313-2318. Published in the prestigious journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, this paper reported the first analysis of sequences of transcribed or expressed genes in a marine animal. It was one of the first such studies, comparing inbre and hybrid families of any organism.
