About This Project
Angelfish are a popular fish kept in the aquarium hobby. However, to this date, no one has ever sequenced the genome of the freshwater angelfish. Taking advantage of Nanopore technology, I aim to sequence the genome of this wonderful aquarium pet and potential model organism. I have already assembled 65% of the fish's genome and need to raise funds to sequence the rest. This complete genome assembly will reveal novel information about angelfish phylogeny and its genetic architecture.
