Nematostella vectensis is a tiny, worm-like anemone belonging to the oldest eumetazoan phylum, the Cnidaria. It grows up to 40mm long with up to 16 long tentacles. It is native to salt marshes along the coasts of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. It is a good indicator of pollution due to its sensitivity to hypoxia.

The Nematostella vectensis genome has a diploid chromosome number of 30 with a total genome size of approximately 450Mb. The genome contains around 18,000 predicted protein-coding genes, comparable to other animals. Over 25% of the genome comprises repetitive elements, including DNA transposons, long terminal repeat and non-long terminal repeat retrotransposons.
