Trans-NIH Mouse Initiative


Opportunity for Obtaining the Sequence of Mouse DNA of Particularly High Biomedical Interest

As part of the NIH Mouse Genome Sequencing Network's effort to determine the complete DNA sequence of the laboratory mouse, strain C57BL6/J, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has initiated a program that will allow investigators to request that particular regions of the mouse genome get into the sequencing pipeline earlier than would otherwise be possible. Sequencing will be done by centers that have already been funded through the Network and sequences will be released into the public database rather than to requestors. The program is managed by the National Human Genome Research Institute. Submission dates for the year 2000 are February 1, April 1, June 1, August 1, October 1, and December 1.
