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 (http://www.genome.gov/page.cfm?pageID=10506376).
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 annotation-webmaster(at)broad.mit.edu.
