The last decade is marked by rapidly increasing number of de novo sequenced genomes, not the least for marine organisms. Virtually each genome project reports novel features of genome organization and offers new insights in the genomics, evolution and general biology of the studied organisms. Therefore within the CeMEB project, large efforts have been devoted to sequence and annotate several marine genomes.

In this session we want to create a forum for guests and local researchers working with genomes of various marine organisms, and ask them to tell the stories about their favorite marine genomes: What was the rationale for choosing their species for genome sequencing project; a quick look back on the journey from a decision to sequence a genome to a draft assembly; what were the most exciting findings in the genome and whether they had been anticipated, and finally, which questions and technologies will take us to the next steps. Ultimately, in this session we want to discuss how the rapidly increasing number of available genomes is changing the way we study evolutionary biology.
