Acknowledgements - We thank Marvin Frazer, then head of U.S. DOE Life Sciences, for the inspiration and commitment to pursue the sequencing of this first crustacean genome. We thank Peter Cherbas, who directs the Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics (CGB), for his support and leadership in creating this new genomic model system. We thank Gregory Werner and his group at JGI for support of gene annotation tools. We also thank Roland Green, Tsetska Takova and their groups at Roche NimbleGen Inc. for providing early access and technical expertise to custom microarray technologies enabling the functional annotation of the genome sequence. The work conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute is supported by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy under Contract No. DE-AC02-05CH11231, and in collaboration with the Daphnia Genomics Consortium (DGC).

Thanks to Keithanne Mockaitis and the CGB sequencing team (Jade Carter, James Ford, Zach Smith) for access to an early draft assembly of the Daphnia magna genome sequence. Sequencing infrastructure at the CGB was provided by a major grant from the the Lilly Endowment, Inc. Thanks to Matthew Hahn (Indiana University) for providing critical suggestions. The following people contributed DNA and RNA samples for this research: Jim Haney (University of New Hampshire), Rebecca Klaper (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee), Thomas Little (University of Edinburgh), Norman Yan (York University), Jarkko Routtu and Dieter Ebert (University of Basel). Analyses, data curation and data distribution are primarily attributed to wFleaBase, developed at the Genome Informatics Lab of Indiana University with support to Don Gilbert from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Specialized shared databases were also created by Mark Blaxter (University of Edinburgh) and Hajime Watanabe (Okazaki National Research Institutes). Coordination infrastructure for the DGC is provided by The Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics at Indiana University, which is supported in part by the METACyt Initiative of Indiana University, funded in part through a major grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc. Computer support was provided by an allocation TG-MCB060059N through the TeraGrid Advanced Support, by the University Information Technology Services (UITS) and by The Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics computing group. We thank the computing group leaders Phillip Steinbachs (CGB), Craig Stewart and Richard Repasky (UITS).
