NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Which parts of the genome are important for building a mammal? With new grant funding in hand, members of the 200 Mammals Project are continuing to work away at a genomics resource for answering this and many more questions.

Much of the mammal sequencing effort is undertaken with short-read sequencing and DISCOVAR de novo assembly, making it possible to sequence nanogram-scale DNA samples, though the researchers plan to include some representative genomes from each mammal family that have more contiguous assemblies.
