• Echinobase aims to provide a comparative genomics platform for the echinoderm clade.
  • Currently, genomes for Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, Lytechinus variegatus, Patiria miniata, Parastichopus parvamensis and Ophiothrix spiculata are posted here.
  • Transcriptomes for these and other echinoderms are also presented.
  • We continue to expand our information system as additional genome and transcriptome assemblies become available.
