Camel Genome

The Bactrian Camels Genome Sequencing and Analysis Consortium presents its 2.01 Gb draft genome sequence of the Bactrian camel genome in Nature Communications this week. The group sequenced both an 8-year-old wild male Bactrian camel from Altai province, Mongolia, and a 6-year-old male Bactrian camel from Inner Mongolia, China. From this, the researchers were able to identify rapidly evolving genes involved in metabolism that may enable the camels to endure life in the desert.
