Cetacean Genomes Status

May 14, 2020

Monitoring multiple genome databases and publications to catalog genome resources.

Cetacean genome assemblies and data sets are being generated at an ever-increasing rate, using a variety of genomic sequencing and assembly methods. In order to minimize redundancy and cost, we are monitoring multiple genome databases and publications to catalog genome resources. Availability of genomic data can both reduce costs of completing a reference-quality genome, and shift the priorities for generating genome assemblies of species with no public genomic resources.

The table below lists the genome assemblies currently available through public genome databases and genome project-oriented web sites. If we have missed a recent genome release, please let us know by emailing phillip.morin@noaa.gov. Additional details of some cetacean genome assemblies are available at from the Vertebrate Genomes Project and DNAzoo.
