Norwegian Consortium Assembles, Annotates Cod Genome from 454 Data

The cod is among the first vertebrates to have its genome assembled entirely from next-generation shotgun sequencing data. In a second project phase, which may also involve short-read sequencing technologies, the researchers plan to fill in gaps in the genome, improve the annotation, and sequence the transcriptomes and genomes of additional cod samples from different geographic areas.
