Table 1 Assembly comparison to other molluscan transcriptomes sequenced using 454 technology

From: Transcriptomic analysis of candidate osmoregulatory genes in the eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica

  1. The assemblies are ordered in decreasing size of estimated total assembly. *This calculation is from the mean contig length and number of assembled contigs and is provided as a means to compare transcriptome size.
