The Maize Sequence Status
On the status page, the clones marked as "Tile" are selected for
sequencing by one of the following groups:
- STMG (Sequencing the Maize Genome) project is a collaboration
with Joachim Messing at
(Plant Genome Initiative at Rutgers),
Towards this effort, we are collaborating with
(MIT/Broad Institute Center for Genome Research) to sequence approximately
140 BACs. The Genbank entries with Group=Birren are from this project.
- MGC (Maize Genomics Consortium)
is generating a 5x coverage of approximately 300 BACs.
- CSHL (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) is sequencing a set of BACs on chromosome 8 as a pilot project.
