Title: Ostracod (Ostracoda, Crustacea) genomics - Promises and challenges
Authors: Schon, Isa

Issue Date: 2016
Citation: MARINE GENOMICS, 29, p. 19-25
Abstract: Ostracods are well-suited model organisms for evolutionary research. Classic genetic techniques have mostly been used for phylogenetic studies on Ostracoda and were somewhat affected by the lack of large numbers of suitable markers. Genomic methods with their huge potential have so far rarely been applied to this group of crustaceans. We provide relevant examples of genomic studies on other organisms to propose future avenues of genomic ostracod research. At the same time, we suggest solutions to the potential problems in ostracods that the application of genomic techniques might present.
