CIIMAR integrates consortium for the study of marine invertebrates
The IGNITE project is a consortium of several universities and research institutions including CIIMAR, that aim to gather together European excellence to train a new generation of scientists skilled in all aspects of invertebrate genomics. Invertebrates, represent 95% of animal diversity on earth but are a surprisingly underexplored reservoir of genetic resources. The project aims to enhance knowledge and understanding of animal genome knowledge by generating and analysing novel data from undersampled invertebrate lineages, developing innovative new tools for high-quality genome assembly and analysis and train genomicists to to take up leadership roles in both academia and industry.
