Tigriopus californicus (San Diego) Assembly and Gene Annotation

About Tigriopus californicus

T. californicus is a harpacticoid copepod that shows extensive population divergence and is becoming a model for understanding allopatric differentiation and the early stages of speciation [1].

Assembly

The Tigriopus californicus Illumina sequencing was done by Cofactor Genomics, proximity ligation libraries based on the Chicago and Hi-C methods were prepared by Dovetail Genomics as described previously, PacBio sequencing was performed by the University of North Carolina High Throughput Genomic Sequencing Facility. The resulting Tcal_SD_v2.1 assembly was built and submitted by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD Marine Biology Research Division[1].

Annotation

The gene models were predicted [1] at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD Marine Biology Research Division using MAKER2 pipeline and deposited at GeneBank from where Ensembl Genomes imported the data. Non-coding RNA genes were added using the Ensembl Genomes pipeline.
