12/22/2009    Release of the results of Mapped Annotation of S. octosporus yFS286 Ultracontigs

The ultracontigs were constructed based on physical mapping data from Nick Rhind (University of Massachusetts Medical School), Conrad Nieduszynski (University of Nottingham) and William Brown (University of Nottingham). Scaffolds are separated by gaps of 1000 N's, and contigs within scaffolds are separated by 100 N's.

Ultracontigs 1-3 corresponds to supercont3.1~3.3. Ultracontig 4 is a collection of unmapped scaffolds/contigs.
