3/26/2007    The initial release of our 6X sequence assembly of C. pipiens quinquefasciatus JHB

This assembly has been deposited at GenBank under the project accession AAWU01000000. The sequence traces from the Broad Institute sequencing can be downloaded from the NCBI trace repository.

Important information about this release can be found here.

This initial release allows:

  • BLAST searches against our 6X genome assembly
  • Downloads of the consensus sequence and additional files for the genome assembly
  • Feature Search of the features found in the genome assembly
  • Search and download a particular region of the genome assembly
