Octopus bimaculoides Assembly and Gene Annotation

About Octopus bimaculoides

Wikipedia

The California two-spot octopus (Octopus bimaculoides), despite the first part of its name, has a range throughoput the eastern Pacific and the Indo-Pacific. The second part of its name derives from the false eye spot (ocellus) under each real eye, which is an iridescent blue chain-link circle set in a circle of black. It has several common colors, such as grey with yellow splotches, and uses highly developed crypsis (camouflage).

Assembly

The assembly presented is the Octopus_bimaculoides_v2_0 assembly submitted to INSDC with the assembly accession GCA_001194135.1.

Annotation

Ensembl Metazoa displays the v2.2 gene set produced by the OIST Molecular Genetics Unit. Genes were annotated with the DOE Joint Genome Institute pipeline, which combines transcriptomic data with de novo and homology-based prediction methods [1]. Protein features and cross-references have been computed by Ensembl Metazoa.
