TIGM Deposits Knockout Mouse Sequence Data in Genbank

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - The Texas Institute for Genomic Medicine has deposited more than 275,000 nucleotide sequence tags from its knockout mouse library into the National Institutes of Health's Genbank, TIGM said today.
Houston-based TIGM, which joined the International Knockout Mouse Consortium in May, said it offered the genetic sequence information to NIH after the institute called for mouse data to be widely shared throughout the international scientific community.
TIGM said the samples were pulled from its library of C57BL/6 mouse embryonic stem cells and deposited into Genbank’s Genome Survey Sequences division.
The institute said that the deposit is “one of the largest single submissions” to Genbank since it was created in 1982.
