Horseshoe crabs including Tachypleus tridentatus are a group of marine arthropods living fossil species which have existed on the earth for 500 million years. However, the genetic mechanisms underlying their unique adaptive ability are still unclear. Here, we assembled the first chromosome-level T. tridentatus genome, and proofed that this genome is of very high quality with contig N50 1.69 Mb. By comparison with other arthropods, some gene families of T. tridentatus experienced significant expansion, whichare...
