Experts in our country the first painting scorpions genome diversity veil

, led by wuhan university, in collaboration with Shanghai biological information technology research center, recently completed to martensite is buthus (Mesobuthus martensii) genome sequencing, forecasts the 32016 protein-coding genes, the first in the world reveals the scorpion (scorpion) that a particular mode of arthropods to adapt.

, experts say, martensite is buthus genome analysis the diversity of scorpion toxin veil, to find new functional molecules or even prodrug provides a reliable basis.
