Amazon molly

Poecilia formosa

Genome assembly: Poecilia_formosa-5.1.2 (GCA 000485575.1)

This is the preliminary display of the assembly of the Amazon molly genome (Poecilia formosa 5.1.2, GCA_000485575.1), produced in October 2013 by the Aquatic Genome Models Consortium. It consists of 3,985 unplaced scaffolds. The N50 of the contigs of the submitted assembly is 57.47 Kb and the N50 of the scaffolds is 1.574 Mb. The N50 size is the length such that 50% of the assembled genome lies in blocks of the N50 size or longer.

Gene annotation

What can I find? Protein-coding and non-coding genes, splice variants, cDNA and protein sequences, non-coding RNAs.

Preliminary gene annotation in the Amazon molly has been generated by a combination of alignments of nucleotide and protein sequences from a number of different sources. We aligned human, zebrafish and stickleback translations from Ensembl release 74 to provide 8908, 16,823 and 17,226 gene models, respectively. Ab initio gene predictions and alignments of sequences from UniProt, UniGene and the ENA vertebrate RNA collection are also provided.
