Building a Dolphin Genome Assembly

November 8, 2018

The bottlenose dolphin is one of the most widely studied marine mammals. However, researchers are limited in the mapping of genetic diversity of wide populations. High quality genomes are essential to resolve challenges in breeding, comparative biology, medicine and conservation planning for bottlenose dolphins. See how an advanced assembly was completed and donated by a group of global researchers from Illumina, Inc., SeaWorld, Plant with Purpose, NRGene, Johns Hopkins University and the Ocean Discovery Institute.
