The Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) is arguably one of the most iconic and well-studied salmonid species, with great societal, economic, and ecological importance. Its mammalian sized genome has undergone extensive restructuring since a whole genome duplication event ~80 million years ago, which creates opportunities to explore the evolutionary process of rediploidization. Today, a genome assembly is publically available (Lien et al. 2016) , wherein 9447 scaffolds (N50 = 3.18Mb) are ordered into 29 chromosome files. On the SalmoBase pages you will find a GBrowse interface for exploring the chromosome sequence. Using public RNAseq data we have performed an annotation and identified 37,000 high confidence protein coding genes, wherein almost half show splice variants. BLAST functionality is included as are links to expression levels, gene and SNP information.
