We have now published the clouded apollo genome assembly.


A genome report for the clouded apollo has been published in GBE. With help from the ERGA staff, we managed to get a high-contiguity assembly and a detailed annotation of this highly repetitive and large genome (for a butterfly). The details of the publication are as follows:

Höglund, J., Dias, G., Olsen, R.-A., Soares, A., Bunikis, I., Talla, V., and Backström, N. 2024. A chromosome-level genome assembly and annotation for the clouded apollo butterfly (Parnassius mnemosyne), a species of global conservation concern, Genome Biology and Evolution 2024: evae031.
