Info • Micromonas pusilla CCMP1545


This v3.0 assembly (22 Aug 2011) 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.

This v3.2 annotation (22 Nov 2013) is improved with RNA-Seq and manual curation.

Summary statistics for the Micromonas pusilla CCMP1545 v3.2 release are below.
