Abstract
This is the first report of a transcriptome assembly of a newly discovered hydrothermal vent mussel, Gigantidas vrijenhoeki (Bivalvia: Mytilidae), on the Central Indian Ridge. Gigantidas vrijenhoeki was identified from material collected at the newly discovered Onnuri Vent Field (OVF) on the Central Indian Ridge in 2018, and was reported as a new species, distinct from another dominant hydrothermal vent mussel, Bathymodiolus marisindicus, in 2020. We sequenced the transcriptome of G. vrijenhoeki using the Illumina HiSeq X System. De novo assembly and analysis of the coding regions predicted 25,405 genes, 84.76% of which was annotated by public databases. The transcriptome of G. vrijenhoeki will be a valuable resource in studying the ecological and biological characteristics of this new species, which is distinct from other deep-sea mussels. These data should also support the investigation of the relationship between the environmental conditions of hydrothermal vents and the unique distribution of G. vrijenhoeki in the OVF of the Central Indian Ridge. © 2020 The Authors
