Example sentences for: invertebrates

How can you use “invertebrates” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Experimental studies of invertebrates that contain only a single Runx gene (sea urchin, tunicate, and nematode) are therefore likely to highlight primitive (general) functions of this family of transcription factors in the control of cell fate, proliferation, and differentiation during metazoan development.

  • The alternative hypothesis - that gene duplications are fixed in a population by positive selection in all organisms - is supported by a combination of evidence of adaptive duplications from many types of living organisms: prokaryotes [ 31, 33, 45, 46, 48, 50, 55, 56], protists [ 35, 58, 59], plants [ 39, 44], fungi [ 43, 49], invertebrates [ 40, 41, 51, 52, 53], non-mammalian vertebrates [ 54], as well as mammalian somatic tissues [ 34, 36, 37, 38].

  • Two of the invertebrates in our collection with completely sequenced genomes, the protostome C. elegans and the deuterostome C. intestinalis , each were found to contain a single Runx gene.

  • These have included the sequencing of randomly selected cDNAs from various tissue sources, the development of computer-based prediction programs of ever-increasing accuracy, and the direct comparison between the human genome and the genome sequences of other vertebrates and invertebrates [ 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 ] . Using these approaches, fully annotated genomes of numerous species will be available within a relatively short time.

  • Fish such as fathead minnows, sheepshead minnows, and silversides, and invertebrates such as daphnids and mysids, are easily reared in the laboratory or purchased.
