The Hofstenia miamia genome was sequenced and assembled at Harvard University.


The gene models were predicted at Harvard University and deposited at Srivastava Lab Hofstenia miamia data page from where Ensembl Genomes imported the data. Non-coding RNA genes were added using the Ensembl Genomes pipeline.
