  • We present a genome assembly from an individual Tridacna crocea (the giant clam; Mollusca; Bivalvia; Cardiida; Cardiidae). The genome sequence is 1,049 megabases in span. Most of the assembly is scaffolded into 18 chromosomal pseudomolecules. The mitochondrial genome has also been assembled and is 29.0 kilobases in length. Gene annotation of this assembly on Ensembl identified 20,881 protein coding genes.
