Welcome to Lymnaea.org, Homepage of Lymnaea stagnalis Sequencing Project Databases

The freshwater large pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis (Mollusca, Pulmonata, Basommatophora, Lymnaeidae) has been a very useful model for studies in molecular, cellular, developmental and behavioral neurobiology, especially in the field of neuronal regeneration of the central nervous system, synapse formation, synaptic plasticity, and aging. It is also a valuable model for environmental research and reproductive physiology. A number of laboratories around the world use Lymnaea stagnalis as a model for independent research, generating ~4000 publications from 1986 until present.

In order to harness the full potential of this valuable animal model, members of the international Lymnaea scientific community have conducted a number of sequencing projects of the Lymnaea stagnalis CNS. This website constitutes a database of Lymnaea CNS transcripts from various sequencing projects, and each database is searchable using BLAST.
