Jonah Ventures is assisting the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History to assemble and annotate >700 fish mitogenomes. Mitogenomes (and high copy nuclear sequences) are sequenced with genome skimming (shallow sequencing to capture repeated genetic elements) from voucher collections. Jonah is developing computational pipelines to better automate processes and publicly archiving results. Here is a circos figure showing a complete annotated mitogenome for Canthigaster solandri (spotted sharpnose puffer). With this project, we are building capacity to help improve sequence libraries for other clients.
