DNA Zoo collaboration yields two new anteater chromosome-scale genomes

By teaming up with the DNA Zoo team who generated HiC structural data to upgrade our high-quality hybrid genome assemblies, we are releasing two new chromosome-scale genome assemblies for the giant anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla) ( and the southern tamandua (Tamandua tetradactyla) ( The new chromosome scale assemblies and annotations can be found here:

- Giant anteater (

- Southern tamandua (

Stay tuned for more chromosome-scale assemblies of ant-eating mammal genomes produced by the nascent ConvergeAnt/DNAZoo collaboration!
