Ciona intestinalis (the vase tunicate or sea squirt) is a solitary, sessile member of the Urochordata. Found globally in tidal marine habitats, it is considered to be an invasive species as it forms dense aggregates on structures such as boat hulls and aquaculture rafts. In the laboratory, it is widely used as a model invertebrate chordate by researchers interested in chordate development and evolution.

The Ciona intestinalis genome is unusually small, about one-twentieth the size of the human genome. It contains approximately 14,000 protein-coding genes. Most of the sequence originates from a single individual from Half Moon Bay, California.
