Data and Report from S&T Project Number 1866: Sequencing of the quagga mussel (Dreissena rostriformis bugensis) genome as a tool for biocontrol

The quagga mussel is an invasive freshwater bivalve which poses a significant risk to Reclamation facilities and operations. The current project undertook sequencing and assembly of the quagga mussel genome to provide a resource for efforts to understand mussel biology and to develop genetic biocontrols. A chromosome-scale reference genome assembly was developed during the project. Analyses of the assembled genome show that it displays high levels of both contiguity and completeness.
