Draft genome of the staghorn coral Acropora millepora

The draft assembly was constructed from a combination of PacBio and Illumina paired-end reads with 10X Genomics barcodes. Feel free to use the assembly and publish results that rely on it, but be aware that it is a work in progress. We hope to release updated versions, so please email us if you identify errors in your own analyses. For all questions, please send us an email at corals.columbia AT and include your name and institution. See Methods for a description of the assembly and annotation pipelines.

Given the large number of repeat classes, we do not show recombination rates around all possible repeats in our paper. However, recombination rates around any repeat with more than 200 occurrences (after thinning nearby copies) of interest can be viewed using an interactive online viewer. The viewer can be accessed here.
