China National GeneBank Leads 1,000 Fish Transcriptome Project | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The China National GeneBank (CNGB) has launched an international collaboration that will sequence the transcriptomes of 1,000 fish species, with the aim of enabling new research into the origin, evolution, and the diversification of these animals, BGI said today.

In the 1,000 Fish Transcriptome Project (Fish T1K), the research partners plan to complete the sequencing and transcriptome assembly for the 1,000 species in three to five years, and to establish a high-quality transcriptomic database of fishes.
