CE sequencing

The new sequence data includes 156 new insertions corresponding to novel exons and noncoding regions. The researchers also compared their data to a next-generation sequence and de novo assembled genome, highlighting the advantages and limitations of the newer technology.

American researchers reported today that they have sequenced the genomes of a primary breast tumor, brain metastasis, and matched normal tissue from an African-American woman with basal-like breast cancer as well as a xenograft sample derived from primary tumor tissue.

A Washington University-led research team reported in Nature today that they have sequenced the zebra finch genome.

Researchers from France, Italy, and Germany reported in Nature yesterday that they have sequenced the genome of the Périgord black truffle, Tuber melanosporum.

By comparing the genomes of three pathogenic fungi, an international research team identified pathogenicity chromosomes in the fungus Fusarium oxysporum that can move between strains in that species.

A set of papers appearing in PLoS Biology, PLoS Genetics, Genome Biology, and Insect Molecular Biology outline the International Aphid Genomics Consortium's efforts to sequence and analyze the pea aphid genome.

Members of the International Brachypodium Initiative reported in Nature today that they have sequenced the genome of Brachypodium distachyon, a wild relative of wheat and barley.

Genome sequencing and comparative genomics studies of three parasitoid wasp species in the genus Nasonia have produced data that is enhancing the wasps' potential as gentically tractable model organisms.

The study demonstrates the ability of next-gen sequencing technologies to detect chromosomal rearrangements at a level that previous sequencing technologies and cytogenetics could not do.

In Sequence spoke to Karen Nelson, the new head of the J. Craig Venter Institute's Rockville, Md., campus, about the future of JCVI's research and how new sequencing technologies are expanding the scope of what researchers there are able to study.
