Transcriptome profiling of Caenorhabditis elegans in its first larval stage
Novel expressed sequence tags (ESTs) from C. elegans that map to previously unknown genes, splice variants and non-coding RNAs have been uncovered by transcriptome profiling of the nematode's first larval stage using next generation pyrosequencing technology. Such application of this new sequencing technique allows for high-throughput, genome-wide experimental verification of known and novel transcripts. This study provides a more complete C. elegans transcriptome profile and, furthermore, gives insight into the evolutionary and biological complexity of this organism.
