Publications for John Cheeseman - Genomes and Transcriptomes

The following is a list of major publications from my lab during the period in which genomes and transcriptomes were the major focus. Note: this work was entirely in collaboration with Prof. Hans Bohnert and the two co-best young genomicists in the solar system, Dr. Maheshi Dassanayake and Dr. Dong-Ha Oh.
