Athalia rosae


No genome information of primitive hymenoptera (Symphyta, sawfly) is available vs higher suborder (Apocrita, Apis, Nasonia etc.). This species is a hymenopteran model maintained in laboratory through year.

Tools such that transgenesis, systemic RNAi, artificial egg activation, artificial fertilization by cryopreserved sperm injection, etc. are established.

DNA from a single haploid male (10-15 microgram/male) and from haploid offspring from a single mother (30-50 males) are available anytime.

Data were generated by the Baylor College of Medicine's i5k pilot project.

Assembly Information

Analysis Name Whole genome assembly of Athalia rosae
Software Baylor College of Medicine genome assembly pipeline (NA)
Source Athalia rosae Aros01112013 assembly
Date performed 2013-07-16
Materials & Methods

Sequence generation for assembly. For this project we are generating fairly high coverage in a number of different insert sized libraries. The assembly strategy is based around a seed allpaths assembly (the Broad Allpaths assembler) followed by seed assembly improvement using homegrown tools, Atlas-link and Atlas-GapFill, which can significantly improve the results. Thus we generate sequence data to enable the Allpaths assembly. As of Nov 2011 this is: - 40X genome coverage in 180bp insert library (100bp reads forward and reverse); and 40X 3kb insert data. To enable better scaffolding and local gap filling we additionally generate 500bp, 1kb, 2kb, and 8kb insert sizes at > 20X coverage.
