Taxonomy10228 - Trichoplax adhaerens
Last modifiedDecember 12, 2018
Genome assembly and annotationi GCA_000150275.1 from ENA/EMBL

Trichoplax adhaerens is a marine invertebrate distributed in tropical waters worldwide. It is one of the most simple free-living sea-water animals, a member of the Placozoa phylum. Its body is flat with no axis of symmetry, it possesses only four types of somatic cells and has one of the smallest known animal genomes. The rationale for sequencing the genome was to gain insight into the evolution of animal life.

The T. adhaerens genome was sequenced and assembled by the Joint Genome Institute in August 2006. The annotations were released in July 2007 and published in 2008.
