Organism ImagePetromyzon marinus (sea lamprey)

Sea lampreys are an invasive parasitic fish native to the North Atlantic Ocean.

Lineage: Eukaryota[8285]; Metazoa[3940]; Chordata[1887]; Craniata[1865]; Vertebrata[1865]; Cyclostomata[5]; Hyperoartia[4]; Petromyzontiformes[4]; Petromyzontidae[4]; Petromyzon[1]; Petromyzon marinus[1]
Petromyzon marinus, or sea lamprey, represents one of the earliest diverged vertebrates and represent an important species for studying vertebrate evolution and comparative genomics. The sea lamprey has recently been selected for genome sequencing based on its evolutionary distance from other sequenced vertebrates.
