Characterization of the whole transcriptome of whelk Rapana venosa by single-molecule mRNA sequencing

Authors: Song, Hao and Yang, Meijie and Yu, Zhenglin and Zhang, Tao

The veined rapa whelk (Rapana venosa) is an important commercial gastropod in China but is also an important invasive pest worldwide. Lack of genome information restricts investigation of this species. Here we report the first full-length transcriptome database derived from six different developmental stages of the whelk obtained using the PacBio Iso-Seq. As a result, 88,162 high-quality and full-length unigenes were obtained with average length of 2895?bp, among which 70,496 unigenes were successfully annotated, and 192,951 CDS regions, 1182 transcription factors, 284,387 microsatellite loci, and 27,222 lncRNAs were indentified. This study provides a valuable resource for characterizing the R. venosa transcriptome and for future analyses of gene expression profiles.
