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.
