Crassostrea

Crassostrea gigantissima (Finch, 1824) from the Eocene of Texas.
Crassostrea gigantissima (Finch, 1824) right valve interior (Eocene of Texas).

Crassostrea is a genus of true oysters (family Ostreidae) containing the most important oysters used for food.

Species[edit]

Genetics[edit]

The genome of Crassostrea gigas has been recently sequenced [2] revealing an extensive set of genes that enable it to cope with environmental stresses.
