This site displays the DEVIL7.0 assembly (GCA_000219685.1) of the Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) genome. The genome sequence and assembly are provided by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and Illumina. The N50 size is the length such that 50% of the assembled genome lies in blocks of the N50 size or longer. The N50 length for supercontigs is 1847.19 kb and is 20.13 kb for contigs. The total number of bases in supercontigs is 3.17 Gb and in contigs is 2.93 Gb.
The Ensembl genome annotation pipeline was used to identify genes. Models built from Tasmanian devil proteins and cDNAs have been given priority over predictions from other vertebrate species. 5,663 transcript models made from paired end Illumina RNA-Seq were added into the gene set where they added a novel model or splice variant. RNA-Seq data was also used to add UTR to non species specific models. The total gene set contains 20,419 genes including pseudogenes and ncRNAs.
General information about this species can be found in Wikipedia.
