Red gorgonian

Paramuricea clavata

We have sequenced, assembled and annotated the Mediterranean red gorgonian, Paramuricea clavata, genome. This Mediterranean octocoral harbors a key structuring role in biodiversity rich coralligenous habitats but it is highly threatened by warming induced mass mortality events. The release of its genome and annotation opens new perspectives for restoration actions and in particular for the identification of genetic factors involved in the differential response to thermal stress and population sourcing.
