MeSH headings : Animals; Annelida / genetics; Larva / genetics; Phylogeny; Polychaeta / genetics; Sequence Analysis, DNA
TL;DR: An annotated chromosomal-level genome assembly of S. benedicti is presented, which is the largest annelid genome to date that has been assembled to chromosomal scaffolds, yet it does not show evidence of extensive gene family expansion, but rather longer intergenic regions.
