Abstract

A high-quality genome assembly of a mature female individual of striped catfish was generated by integration of short reads from an Illumina Hiseq Xten platform, long reads from a Nanopore platform, and Hi-C sequencing data. The Illumina short reads were sequenced at 60 X coverage, while the Nanopore long reads covered 85 X of the genome. This assembled genome is 742.6 Mb in length, with a contig N50 of 3.5 Mb and a scaffold N50 of 29.5 Mb, of which a total of 731.7 Mb reads (98.5%) were anchored on 30 pseudo-chromosomes. Among the totally searched 4,584 BUSCO groups in the popular actinopterygii_odb9 database, 4,279 (93.3%) BUSCO core genes were completely identified.
