Antarctic notothenioids fish genomes project
At the Wellcome Sanger Institute we are generating genome assemblies for 24 species across the notothenioid radiation. We are generating PacBio reference assemblies for five species, including the non-Antarctic Cottoperca gobio (synonym Cottoperca trigloides), and four cryonotothenioids; Trematomus bernachii, Harpagifer antarcticus, Gymnodraco acuticeps, and Pseudochaenichtys georgianus. Also, we are also generating draft reference assemblies for 20 more species.
This work is funded by the Wellcome Trust.
