12/8/2008 Initial release of our chromosome-based sequence assembly
Initial release of chromosome-based sequence assembly of the Cryptococcus neoformans serotype A genome from strain H99. This assembly was provided by Jason Stajich (UC-Berkeley) and Fred Dietrich (Duke). The scaffolding was based on the previous release of 11X Arachne assembly (AACO02000000) and a genetic map generated by Jim Kronstad (Vancouver Genome Sequence Centre), with some additional sequencing and PCR to validate the putative joins.
The sequence traces from the Broad Institute sequencing can be downloaded from the NCBI trace repository. This genome project has been deposited at DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank under the project accession AACO00000000. This release is the third version, AACO03000000.
This initial release allows:
