GIGA: Global Invertebrate Genomics Alliance research
Partnered Collections, Special Issues
GIGA is an international non-profit community of scientists dedicated to promoting genomics research of diverse non-model invertebrate species. Invertebrates comprise over 95% of all animal species and are grouped into ~35 distinct phyla, yet only limited genomic and transcriptomic data are currently available and primarily focus on a few model species. GIGA advocates an increased availability of non-insect/non-nematode invertebrate genomes and transcriptomes, with an emphasis on marine taxa because of the unrivaled phyletic diversity in the oceans. Target species will be based on phylogenetic placement, relevance to organismal, ecological, and conservation research, and their importance to fisheries and human health. This Collection welcomes papers that reflect GIGA’s primary goals – see also our inaugural white paper.
