Madagascan fruit bat (Eidolon dupreanum)

Eidolon dupreanum is noteworthy for being the only known sister species to the famous African Straw-Colored Fruit Bat, Eidolon helvum, which is distributed widely across the African continent and demonstrates the largest panmictic range ever described for any non-marine mammal!

Chromosome-length genome assembly

Download the Eidolon_dupreanum_HiC.fasta.gz file containing the chromosome-length (2n=34) assembly of the madagascan fruit bat genome. All modifications with respect to the draft (see below) are annotated in the Eidolon_dupreanum_HiC.assembly file. Some basic stats associated with the new reference, Eidolon_dupreanum_HiC, are listed below. The full data release can be explored here.

Draft

The chromosome-length genome assembly is based on the draft assembly Eidolon_dupreanum, credited below.

The draft assembly was generated by the DNA Zoo team from short insert-size PCR-free DNA-Seq data using w2rap-contigger (Clavijo et al. 2017), see (Dudchenko et al., 2018) for details. Assembly of this genome was financed by an NIH grant (R01-AI129822-01) administered by Dr. Jean-Michel Heraud of Institut Pasteur of Madagascar and Dr. Cara Brook of UC Berkeley (link: http://grantome.com/grant/NIH/R01-AI129822-01).

Method

3D Assembly was performed using 3D-DNA pipeline (Dudchenko et al., Science, 2017). The genome was reviewed using Juicebox Assembly Tools  (Dudchenko et al., bioRxiv, 2018). See Methods for more information.

Hi-C sample

The kidney sample for in situ Hi-C preparation was obtained from Cara Brook (UC Berkeley).

Hi-C Contact maps

Hi-C data was aligned to the draft reference using Juicer (Durand, Shamim et al., Cell Systems, 2016), and contact maps visualizing the alignments with respect to the draft and the new reference were built using 3D-DNA (Dudchenko et al., Science, 2017). The contact maps can be explored below via Juicebox.js interactive tool (Robinson et al., Cell Systems, 2018). (Please note that the interactive figures are scaled 1:2.) To explore the assembly in greater detail, please download the .hic and .assembly files from the data release folder and use Juicebox Assembly Tools  (Dudchenko et al., bioRxiv, 2018).
