Our goal is to make the genome sequence of organisms rapidly and broadly available to the scientific community. The genome sequencing community recently adopted a statement of principles for the distribution and use of large-scale sequencing data (

We follow these principles and urge users to follow them as well. It is our intention to publish the work of this project in a timely fashion and we welcome collaborative interaction on the project and analyses.

Questions concerning this project or the use of these data should be sent to
