v3.0:  This assembly is a targeted finishing release with 4 chromosomes completely finished with no gaps:  chromosomes: 2,3,18 and 19.  The v2.0 release was very complete with 19 chromosomes completed telomere to telomere.  There are also 2 additional scaffolds which do not appear to be organelle by BLAST and could fit inside some of the larger gaps in the main genome.

Summary statistics for the Micromonas pusilla v3.0 release are below.
