Striped Bass Genome Community

The striped bass (Morone saxatilis) is a perciform fish of recreational and commercial importance in North America. We employed a hybrid assembly approach to produce the striped bass genome using 38,000,000,000 base pairs of Illumina short-read sequence (66-fold genome coverage) and an additional 1,600,000,000 base pairs of Pacific Biosciences single molecule, real-time long-read sequence (2.8-fold genome coverage). The 585,100,000 base pair (585.1 Mbp) genome assembly contains 35,010 scaffolds. Ab-initio and evidence-based gene predictions were performed using the MAKER Annotation Pipeline, identifying 27,485 protein coding genes.
