02/2018NEW Keep an eye on the latest science news. The project gained quite a lot of media attention and is covered by national and international news sources. Here, we will list a just few selected items in our media higlights. Moreover, the download section will now contain the genome and annotation files.
02/2018NEW The marbled crayfish genome paper was just published in Nature Ecology & Evolution (Open Access). We also had the opportunity to write about our insights and approaches in the community blog section "Behind the paper".

01/2018The species description of the marbled crayfish (Procambarus virginalis) was recently published in Zootaxa:
Lyko F. 2017. The marbled crayfish (Decapoda: Cambaridae) represents an independent new species. Zootaxa 4363(4): 544-552. doi: 10.11646/zootaxa.4363.4.6
12/2017A download section was added which will contain genomic resources on the marbled crayfish genome project once the paper is published.
09/2017The marbled crayfish genome version (v0.4) is now available for BLAST search and in the Apollo Genome Browser.
