Antarctic Notothenioids fish genomes project
At the Sanger Institute we are generating genome assemblies for 24 species across the Notothenioid radiation. We are generating 1 reference chromosome assigned assembly for Cottoperca gobio (channel bull blenny), and 4 reference assemblies for species Trematomus bernachii, Harpagifer antarcticus, Gymnodraco acuticeps, and Pseudochaenichtys georgianus. Also, we are also generating draft reference assemblies (10X Chromium) assemblies for 20 more species. As part of the project we are also generating transcriptome data and annotations.
