Eonycteris spelaea. Morphological Description. · Dorsal fur is dark brown. Ventral fur is lighter. · Juveniles are lighter than adults. · This is a medium-sized fruit. Exploring the genome and transcriptome of the cave nectar bat Eonycteris spelaea with PacBio long-read sequencing. Wen M(1), Ng JHJ(1). The cave nectar bat or lesser dawn bat (Eonycteris spelaea), is known to be a reservoir for several viruses and intracellular bacteria.

SEABCRU » Eonycteris spelaea — an essential link in durian pollination networks.

New York, New York: Other parameters were set as default. Classification Kingdom Animalia animals Animalia: Approximate likelihood calculation on a phylogeny for Bayesian estimation of divergence times. Availability of supporting data. The newly assembled E. International Plant Genetic Resource Institute.

Subfamily Nyctimeninae Nyctimene tube-nosed fruit bats Broad-striped tube-nosed fruit bat N. There is little available information on the home range of E. Here, we report the whole-genome and transcriptome sequencing, followed by subsequent de novo assembly, of the E. We hoped the PacBio spelaez technology would facilitate accuracy in annotating this evolutionary divergent species.


The different colors indicate various sources of eoncteris, and the values reflect the number of genes supported by each type of evidence.

It is reasonable that body size is a factor in mate selection in both sexes as it is generally an indicator of superior genes and fitness. Venn diagram for coding gene predictions based on evidence sources.

This newly assembled bat genome is 1. Antigenic relationships of flaviviruses with undetermined arthropod-borne status. Connect with us Help us improve the site by taking our survey. Temperature regulation and rate of metabolism in three Bornean bats. More recently, eonyctrris has been shown that bats may also serve as a new and excellent model to study aging, inflammation, and cancer, among other important biological processes.

Justin H J Ng. The nectar and pollen of Oroxylum indicum is described as their preferred and principle food source. For the final assembly Espe. Behav Ecol Sociobiol Neuweiler, ; Nowak, Black-capped fruit bat C.

Most Pteropodidae species locate food by smell. De novo PacBio long-read and phased avian genome assemblies correct and add to reference genes generated with intermediate and short reads. Accessed November 30, at http: Diet consists primarily of the nectar and pollen of night flowering plant species.

When narrowed down to genes only observed by Iso-Seq, we found an isoform-to-gene ratio of 2. Salim Ali’s fruit bat L. Eonycteris spelaea is found in various habitats ranging from forested to mixed agricultural types.


Thus, our study provides a high-quality reference genome for use in any future comparative studies. There is very little information available on the predators of this species, nor the adaptations it uses to evade eoncteris.

Eonycteris majortheir closest relative, has also been known to use hollow tree cavities. Lesser dawn fruit bats forage in flocks. Fijian monkey-faced Bat M. Variation, Breeding and Conservation. Lesser dawn fruit bats are nectarivorous generalists that have been documented feeding on over 31 plant species.

They are likely to be vulnerable to predation by climbing snakes and nocturnal birds of prey, such as owls. Help us improve the site by taking our survey. More specifically refers to a group of organisms in which members act as specialized subunits a continuous, modular society – as in clonal organisms.
