. The genomes of two key bumblebee species with primitive eusocial organization. Genome Biol. 2015;16:76 pubmed publisher
..Overall, gene repertoires suggest that the route to advanced eusociality in bees was mediated by many small changes in many genes and processes, and not by notable expansion or depauperation. ..
Dalmay T. Mechanism of miRNA-mediated repression of mRNA translation. Essays Biochem. 2013;54:29-38 pubmed publisher
..It is now clear that both animal and plant microRNAs mediate both translational repression of intact mRNAs and also cause mRNA degradation. ..

. Global discovery and characterization of small non-coding RNAs in marine microalgae. BMC Genomics. 2014;15:697 pubmed publisher
..Our data suggest that canonical miRNAs are absent from diatoms. However, the group of tRNA-derived sRNAs seems to be very prominent in diatoms and coccolithophores and maybe used for acclimation to environmental conditions. ..
Omidvar V, Mohorianu I, Dalmay T, Fellner M. Identification of miRNAs with potential roles in regulation of anther development and male-sterility in 7B-1 male-sterile tomato mutant. BMC Genomics. 2015;16:878 pubmed publisher
..A number of new miRNAs were also identified from tomato for the first time. Our data could be used as a benchmark for future studies of the molecular mechanisms of male-sterility in other crops. ..
Green D, Fraser W, Dalmay T. Transfer RNA-derived small RNAs in the cancer transcriptome. Pflugers Arch. 2016;468:1041-7 pubmed publisher
..We expect that cancer cells are percipient to their ablated control of transcription and attempt to prevent loss of genome control through RNA silencing. ..
Ozkan S, Mohorianu I, Xu P, Dalmay T, Coutts R. Profile and functional analysis of small RNAs derived from Aspergillus fumigatus infected with double-stranded RNA mycoviruses. BMC Genomics. 2017;18:416 pubmed publisher
..Host sRNA loci which were differentially expressed as a result of virus infection were also identified. To our knowledge, this is the first study reporting the sRNA profiles of A. fumigatus isolates. ..

. High-throughput sequencing of Medicago truncatula short RNAs identifies eight new miRNA families. BMC Genomics. 2008;9:593 pubmed publisher
..Potential target genes were predicted for most conserved and novel miRNAs. Deep sequencing of short RNAs from M. truncatula leaves identified eight new miRNAs indicating that specific miRNAs exist in legume species. ..
