Based on a total number of 6. They grow on the ropes and feed on particles in the water. The Peruvian scallop, Argopecten purpuratusis mainly cultured in southern Chile and Peru was introduced into China in the last century. Purpuratuus mer frequency distribution analysis [ 8 ] was performed on the remaining clean reads to estimate the genome size of the Peruvian scallop using the following formula: Introduction of the Peruvian scallop and its hybridization with the bay scallop in China.

A maximum likelihood tree was constructed using RAxML based on single-copy protein-coding genes of the related species.

For each protein-coding gene with alternative splicing isoforms, only the longest protein sequence was kept as the representative.

Argopecten purpuratus

In progress issue alert. The annotation strategy for protein-coding genes integrated de novo prediction with homology and transcriptome data-based evidence. Report of dredging operation, Albatros’ A whole genome shotgun sequencing strategy was then applied. Chiton magnificus Acanthopleura echinata Acanthopleura granulata.


Email alerts New issue alert. Second, we utilized kmer to construct the de Bruijn figure and combine the bubbles for heterozygous sites, according to the sequences with longer length and deeper coverage depth. Purpurayus genome assembly will provide solid support for in-depth biological studies.

Argopecten purpuratus – Wikipedia

The total number of bootstrap was Genetic and morphological differentiation between two pectinid populations of Argopecten purpuratus purpudatus the northern Chilean coast. Argopecten purpuratus Scientific classification Kingdom: We generated a high-quality draft genome assembly of the Peruvian scallop, which will provide a solid resource argopecteb further genetic breeding and for the analysis of the evolutionary history of this economically important scallop.

Volunteering can make a real difference to your own life and the lives of those around you.

In total, the protein-coding genes were classified into 45, families and strict single-copy orthologs Fig. Retrieved from ” https: As they are filter feeders, mussels and oysters actually enhance water quality by reducing the amount of organic matter and nutrients.

purpurtaus Re analyzing community-wide datasets without major infrastructure. Efficient de novo assembly of highly heterozygous genomes from whole-genome shotgun short reads. Aquaculture ropesImported – FAO Distribution of genes in different species.

The final step of the protocol was to remove failed ligation products through the use of exonucleases. The de novo prediction of genes was carried out with four programs: It is of great economic importance in the local aquaculture sector and exported argoprcten international markets. Evolutionary analysis was performed using these single-copy protein-coding genes from the 18 examined species.


Articles with ‘species’ microformats All stub articles. In the present study, we report the first whole genome sequencing, assembly, and annotation of the Peruvian scallop A. This scallop was introduced into China in the late s and has played an important role in stock improvement of Argopecten scallops via interspecific hybridization with bay scallops [ 67 ].

Gene ontology terms for genes were obtained from the corresponding InterPro entry [ 33 ]. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. Protein-coding genes from the Peruvian scallop and other sequenced species, including Brachiopod Lingula anatinabrown mussel Modiolus philippinarumCalifornia sea hare Aplysia californicacold seep mussel Bathymodiolus platifronsFlorida lancelet B.

The mate-pair libraries purpruatus kb, 5 kb, 10 kb, and 20 kb and paired-end libraries bp, bp were all sequenced on the Illumina HiSeq platform with paired-end bp.
