Celera Submits Human Genome Manuscript to Science

NEW YORK, Dec 6 – Celera Genomics said Wednesday it had submitted the manuscript on the human genome to Science .

The paper is now undergoing scientific peer review. Celera expects the paper to be published in the first quarter of 2001.

It was not immediately clear whether the publicly-funded human genome project had also submitted its paper.

Celera said it is in talks with the International Public Human Sequencing Consortium to coordinate simultaneous publication.

In addition, Richard Mural, senior staff scientist at Celera, previously told GenomeWeb that he was organizing three human genome annotation jamborees that will be held at Celera starting in January.

Unlike the Celera’s Drosophila annotation jamboree, the human annotation effort will take place after the paper is submitted to Science . The paper Celera submits will be based mostly on an automated annotation.

Mural said Celera would pay scientists to annotate the human genome.

The Scan

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.

Team Presents Cattle Genotype-Tissue Expression Atlas

Using RNA sequences representing thousands of cattle samples, researchers looked at relationships between cattle genotype and tissue expression in Nature Genetics.

Researchers Map Recombination in Khoe-San Population

With whole-genome sequences for dozens of individuals from the Nama population, researchers saw in Genome Biology fine-scale recombination patterns that clustered outside of other populations.

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.
