The genome sequence of the common frog, Rana temporaria Linnaeus 1758

Wellcome Open Res. 2021 Oct 22:6:286. doi: 10.12688/wellcomeopenres.17296.1. eCollection 2021.


We present a genome assembly from an individual female Rana temporaria (the common frog; Chordata; Amphibia; Anura; Ranidae). The genome sequence is 4.11 gigabases in span. The majority of the assembly is scaffolded into 13 chromosomal pseudomolecules. Gene annotation of this assembly by the NCBI Eukaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline has identified 23,707 protein coding genes.

Keywords: Rana temporaria; chromosomal; common frog; genome sequence.
