Please note: text file listing of 3885 genome assembly hubs

Please note, the invertebrate category contains more than just invertebrate animals. Until these clades are sorted out, with extra categories created, you will also find parasites, protozoa, and other single celled eukaryotes in the invertebrate grouping.

Please use the Assembly Request page to find and request GenBank assemblies that have not yet been included in the collections here.
