Finding a genome assembly in BioProject
Hey all, fresh MSc. student and user here.

I'm looking for the genome assembly of Chaenocephalus aceratus (Antarctic blackfin icefish) which should be found in BioProject PRJNA420419, as reported by the writers of this article.

However, as far as I understand, the BioProject data only links to 14 SRA Experiments in 13 BioSamples.
There is a link to genome information of that organism in a green tile at the right side of the page. However, it links to another BioProject with different accession number (PRJEB12469 instead of PRJNA420419).

Am I missing something or is it the assembly that is missing?

Thanks ahead.

People may not always submit the corresponding assemblies to NCBI. You could email the authors and ask.

Hey GenoMax, thanks!

At the end of the article, in Data availability, it's said:

The Antarctic blackfin icefish C. aceratus genome and transcriptome data have been deposited in the NCBI database as BioProject PRJNA420419.
Was I wrong to understand from that that the assembled genome was deposited as well?

Regards asking for the assembly in the mail.
Is it ok to send a letter to all four supplied addresses at once? Or would it be better to try getting their help one after the other?

I would email all four authors...they do all have emails on the Article as sort of corresponding authors.

@Kapara sometimes reality does not follow what is written in the paper. Journals don't always enforce these claim submissions so it would be best to email the authors and confirm.
