NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – In Nature Genetics, members of the Marmoset Genome Sequencing and Analysis Consortium presented the first genome sequence established for the common marmoset, Callithrix jacchus, a diminutive New World monkey species.

The team put together a 2.26 billion base marmoset genome assembly using sequences generated from female marmoset DNA with a combination of Sanger and high-throughput sequencing methods.
