Octopus bimaculoides Assembly and Gene Annotation
About Octopus bimaculoides
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).

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 . Protein features and cross-references have been computed by Ensembl Metazoa.
