Ephydatia muelleri

Ephydatia muelleri (Lieberkühn, 1856) is a widely distributed freshwater sponge. It can be grown in the laboratory, and can be easily stored, transported and shared as gemmules (dormant buds of cells that allow sponges to survive challenging conditions).


The Ephydatia muelleri genome

The genome of Ephydatia muelleri presented here has been sequenced to a chromosomal level using long reads and the Dovetail approach. This data will allow a range of novel investigations into sponge genomics and freshwater adaptation.
