Crude oil is a key contaminant in aquatic environments entering via natural and anthropogenic sources, causing toxicity in marine organisms. Traditionally, biomarkers have been utilised to determine crude oil exposure and effects in aquatic organisms, however advances in genomic technologies has led to increased adoption of transcriptomic approaches for identifying response and detoxification pathways following contaminant exposure. This study presents the first transcriptome for the greentail prawn (Metapenaeus bennettae), a commercially targeted benthic decapod crustacean from eastern and south-eastern Australia. The Trinity generated de novo assembly, after redundancy clustering, resulted..View full abstract
