Mud-flat Korean mud Chorus giganteus. The Peruvian scallop Argopecten purpuratusalso known as the Chilean scallop, is a medium-sized bivalve with a wide distribution in Peru and Chile [ 1 ].

One concern, however, is that this species is highly susceptible to bacterial infections which could contaminate argopcten farmed areas.

Progress in mass culture of Chlamys Argopecten purpurata Lamarck with notes on its natural history.

Finally, we determined that the total repeat sequences are , bp, accounting for Report of dredging operation, Albatros’ Genetic and morphological differentiation between two pectinid populations of Argopecten purpuratus from the northern Chilean coast. Volunteering can make a real difference to your own life and the lives of argopecte around you. The constructed phylogenetic tree Fig. For each protein-coding gene with alternative splicing isoforms, only the longest protein sequence was kept as the representative.

Abalone Periwinkle Whelk Buccinum undatum Bullacta exarata. Cornu aspersum Helix lucorum Helix pomatia. Where is it from? Unlike other Argopecten scallops, the Peruvian scallop normally has a long life span of up to 7—10 years [ 45 ].

Peruvian scallops, Scallop, Peru scallop. Views Read Edit View history. With the availability of these genomic data, subsequent development of genetic markers for further genetic selection and molecular breeding of scallops could be realized.

The mollusca and branchiopoda. Finally, we estimated that the divergence between the Peruvian scallop and Yesso scallop happened at Finally, the 10X Genomics library was constructed and sequenced with paired-end bp on the Illumina Hiseq platform. We generated a high-quality draft genome assembly of the Peruvian scallop, which will provide a solid resource for further genetic breeding and for the analysis of the evolutionary history of this economically important scallop.

We welcome all sustainable seafood champions prepared to donate their time and effort. Retrieved from ” https: Receive exclusive offers and updates from Oxford Academic. Ropes are suspended in the water of sheltered bays and seeded with young mussels or oysters. For PacBio sequencing, the generated polymerase reads were first broken at the adaptor positions, and the subreads were generated after removal of the adaptor sequences. A draft genome assembly of In detail, the DNA sample was randomly broken into fragments using covaris ultrasonic fragmentation apparatus.

We searched transposable elements in the assembled genome through ab-initio and homology-based methods. Based on the phylogenetic tree Fig. This page was last edited on 25 Mayat As scallops are filter feeders no feed is required and damage to the environment is minor.

Finally, the heterozygous contigs and homozygous contigs were distinguished based on contig coverage depth. Close mobile search navigation Article navigation. View large Download slide.
