Transcriptome contigs

Two transcriptomes from specimens from Alaska and Greenland are provided in FASTA format compressed as a ZIP file. Please be aware that these are large files.

Raw reads

Data are available at the NCBI BioProject PRJNA194091 with raw sequencing reads in the Sequence Read Archive (SRP050351). The mitochondrial genome of the bowhead whale was previously sequenced by others and is also available at the NCBI.
