Taxonomy9305 - Sarcophilus harrisii

Genome assembly and annotationi GCA_000189315.1 from Ensembl

The Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) is a member of the family Dasyuridae and is the largest carnivorous marsupial, reaching 76 cm in length and weighing up to 12 kg. It has sharp teeth and strong jaws that can deliver one of the most powerful bites of any mammal.

The species is restricted to the Australian island of Tasmania and is at risk of extinction in the wild due to an unusual transmissible facial cancer, the devil facial tumor disease (DFTD), which is spread between devils by the transfer of cancer cells on biting.

The reference proteome of Sarcophilus harrisii is derived from the genome sequence prepared by the Tasmanian Devil Genome Project by the Center for Comparative Genomics and Bioinformatics at Pennsylvania State University. The project analyzed genomes of two Tasmanian devil individuals, one healthy animal and one with DFTD. The size of the genome is about 3.3 Gb.
