Scrobicularia plana is a coastal and estuarine bivalve widely used in ecotoxicological studies. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms for S. plana pollutant responses are hardly known due to the lack of molecular databases. Thus, in this study we present a holistic approach to assess a robust reference transcriptome and proteome of this clam. A mixture of control and metal-exposed individuals was used for mRNA isolation. Four sets of high quality filtered preprocessed reads were generated (two quality scores and two sequenced lengths) and assembled with Mira, Ray and Trinity algorithms. The sixty-four generated assemblies were refined, filtered and evaluated for their proteomic quality. Eight assemblies presented top Detonate scores but one was selected due to its compactness and biological representation, which was generated: (i) from the highest quality dataset (Q20L100), (ii) using Trinity algorithm with all k-mers (AtKa), (iii) removing redundancy by CD-HIT (RR80), and (iv) filtering out poor contigs (F), that was subsequently named Q20L100AtKaRR80F. S. plana proteomic analysis revealed 10,017 peptide groups that corresponded to 2066 proteins with a wide coverage of molecular functions and biological processes, confirming the strength of the database generated.
