Buscoi <p>The Benchmarking Universal Single-Copy Ortholog (BUSCO) assessment tool is used, for eukaryotic and bacterial proteomes, to provide quantitative measures of UniProt proteome data completeness in terms of expected gene content. BUSCO scores include percentages of complete (C) single-copy (S) genes, complete (C) duplicated (D) genes, fragmented (F) and missing (F) genes, as well as the total number of orthologous clusters (n) used in the BUSCO assessment.</p> C:87.9%[S:81.2%,D:6.7%],F:7.4%,M:4.6%,n:954 metazoa_odb10

The purple sea urchin is a species belonging to the Strongylocentrotidae family in the phylum Echinodermata. It lives in lower intertidal and nearshore subtidal zones along the eastern edge of the Pacific Ocean. The sea urchin is an important model in biomedical research, especially in developmental and cellular biology. It is of particular value for phylogenetic studies of early deuterostome evolution. This species is known to share approximately 8,000 genes with humans.

The purple sea urchin genome has 21 pairs of autosomes and one pair of sex chromosomes containing 814 Mb with 23,000 protein-coding genes. The reference proteome is derived from the genome sequence published in 2006.
