Dear fellow coral-listers,

I would like to draw your attention to a recent publication from our lab.


Here we provide draft genomes for the two Corallimorpharia *Amplexidiscus
fenestrafer* and *Discosoma* sp.. The assemblies encompass ~370 Mb and ~445
Mb respectively and encode for 21,372 and 23,199 genes. We provide gene
predictions, protein and domain annotations as well as comparisons of
various genomic features. Additionally, we also provide more complex
analyses such as quantitative and qualitative repeat content analyses and
ortholog groupings across all sequenced cnidarian genomes.

Our validation of these genomic resources shows that their completeness and
quality is similar to the genomes available for *Aiptasia pallida* and
digitifera*, making them suitable for comparative studies. To facilitate
the use of the resources we also provide download links on our website
http://corallimorpharia.reefgenomics.org, in addition to a BLAST interface
and a genome browser, which facilitates the exploration of our data. We
also provide a bash command protocol and all scripts used for the assembly,
annotation and analyses.

We hope these resources will be valuable for the community and support
further comparative analyses aiming at understanding the evolutionary basis
and origin of coral specific traits. Please feel free to contact me in case
you have any questions regarding the paper or the resources.
