Ryukyu mouse assembly and gene annotation

The Ryukyu mouse (Mus caroli) is a species of rodent in the family Muridae. It is found in Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.


The CAROLI_EIJ_v1.1 assembly was submitted by EBI on 2017/04/28 . The assembly is on the Chromosome level, consisting of 136,968 assembled into 3,163 scaffolds. 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 the contigs is 30,916 while the scaffold N50 is 122,627,250.

Gene annotation

This assembly was annotated using the Comparative Annotation Toolkit developed at UCSC and the external annotation imported to ensembl.

In accordance with the Fort Lauderdale Agreement , please check the publication status of the genome/assembly before publishing any genome-wide analyses using these data.
