NEW YORK, May 30 - Celera Genomics said today it has deposited into Genbank chromosome 16 of its mouse genome sequence.
The release coincides with the upcoming publication in Science of Celera's comparison of human and mouse chromosome 16. According to Celera, the mouse assembly and annotation appearing in Genbank and in Saturday's Science is based on the original assembly Celera made available to customers in July 2001.
The company has since released an updated assembly with more than 7.9X coverage from four distinct strains and 1 sub-strain. More than 94 percent of the genome is assembled in regions greater than 1 Mbase, Celera said on its web site.
