New crinoid genome
Echinobase is providing partial support for the feather star, Anneissia japonica, genome.
The genome and descriptive gene names are displayed in JBrowse and the genome can be searched using BLAST.
The crinoids are sessile and include feather stars, which do not have a stalk, and sea lilies which are attached to the sea floor by a stalk.
Species of crinoids are used as an outgroup for phylogenetic studies within the Echinodermata.
