The Zebrafish (Danio rerio) Sequencing Project
The project is based upon a collaboration between the Sanger
Centre and the international zebrafish community as announced during
the Sanger Centre Zebrafish Workshop 2000. Sequencing started in February
2001 by using a mixture of shotgun from BAC libraries and whole
genome shotgun from plasmids. The data can be searched using the
server or downloaded via the FTP-site and will
also be deposited regularly in the trace depository. Primary
genomic sequence analysis including annotation will proceed through
the Sanger Centre pipeline. The long term repository for curated
annotation will be the zebrafish
database ZFIN. The Sanger Centre will also consider requests
from the zebrafish community to sequence specific BAC or PAC
This project is funded by the Wellcome Trust.
