BMC Genomics 13:155. 2012..This study characterised IFITMs in two distantly related marsupial species, the Australian tammar wallaby and the South American grey short-tailed opossum, and analysed the phylogeny of the IFITM family in vertebrates...
- Genome sequence of an Australian kangaroo, Macropus eugenii, provides insight into the evolution of mammalian reproduction and developmentMarilyn B Renfree
The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Kangaroo Genomics, Australia
Genome Biol 12:R81. 2011..Like other marsupials, it gives birth to highly altricial young, and has a small number of very large chromosomes, making it a valuable model for genomics, reproduction and development...

Department of Zoology, University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria, Australia
Biol Reprod 85:733-43. 2011..Collectively these data suggest that DDX4 is essential for the regulation of germ cell proliferation and differentiation across all three extant mammalian groups-eutherians, marsupials, and monotremes...
