Info • Nematostella vectensis v1.0


Nematostella vectensis genome assembly 1.0 constructed with the JGI assembler, Jazz, includes approximately 7.8X WGS in small insert end-sequence coverage. After trimming for vector and quality, and excluding short/redundant scaffolds, there were 10,942 assembled scaffolds, containing 2,817,779 reads, and 357 Mbp of sequence. Further exclusion of contaminant and mis-assembled scaffolds reduced this to 10,804 scaffolds, with a total length of 356 Mbp Roughly half of the genome is contained in 181 scaffolds all at least 473 Kb in length.
