At present, none of the scaffolds or contigs from the current public WGS assembly have been placed on chromosomes so you cannot browse the sequence data by chromosome. You can find sequenced regions of interest by querying Map Viewer with a gene symbol or accession number. You can also identify genes of interest by:

  • Searching Gene for Saccoglossus kowalevskii genes and following the link to Map Viewer.
  • Searching the sequence using BLAST against the genome. Results from a BLAST sequence alignment can be displayed in Map Viewer by following the link in 'Related Information' to the right of the alignment.

February 2014, Annotation Release 101

This full annotation run includes the following assembly(ies):

The acorn worm Saccoglossus kowalevskii is a worm-like animal found in mudflats of intertidal zones on the coasts of the eastern United States and Europe. As a member of the phylum Hemichordata, the acorn worm is useful in evolutionary studies that compare hemichordates and chordates since adults in both groups exhibit bilateral symmetry, in contrast with members of the sister phylum Echinodermata that have radial symmetry.

The NCBI Map Viewer provides graphical displays of features on the genome assembly. Map features that can be seen along the sequence include annotated genes and transcripts, Gnomon-predicted gene and transcript models, aligned transcript and genomic sequences, RefSeq scaffolds (the 'Contig' map), the assembly tiling path (the 'Component' map), and more. For some species, additional non-sequence maps such as Genetic maps, Radiation hybrid maps, and others may be available.
