Abstract

We are interested in the evolution of microRNAs and other small RNAs. We will investigate the small RNA populations in four different dictyosteliids/social amoebae. This represent distinct evolutionary branches with a common ancestor dating back 600 mil to 1 bil year in time. We will sequence there distinct developmental stages for each species
