Initial sequencing and analysis of the human genome.
The human genome holds an extraordinary trove of information about human development, physiology, medicine and evolution. Here we report the results of an international collaboration to produce andExpand

Complete genome sequence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1, an opportunistic pathogen
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a ubiquitous environmental bacterium that is one of the top three causes of opportunistic human infections. A major factor in its prominence as a pathogen is its intrinsicExpand

Comprehensive transposon mutant library of Pseudomonas aeruginosa
We have developed technologies for creating saturating libraries of sequence-defined transposon insertion mutants in which each strain is maintained. Phenotypic analysis of such libraries shouldExpand

Genetic adaptation by Pseudomonas aeruginosa to the airways of cystic fibrosis patients.
In many human infections, hosts and pathogens coexist for years or decades. Important examples include HIV, herpes viruses, tuberculosis, leprosy, and malaria. With the exception of intensivelyExpand

Mapping and sequencing of structural variation from eight human genomes
Genetic variation among individual humans occurs on many different scales, ranging from gross alterations in the human karyotype to single nucleotide changes. Here we explore variation on anExpand

Fine-scale structural variation of the human genome
Inversions, deletions and insertions are important mediators of disease and disease susceptibility. We systematically compared the human genome reference sequence with a second genome (represented byExpand

The Genome of the Natural Genetic Engineer Agrobacterium tumefaciens C58
The 5.67-megabase genome of the plant pathogen Agrobacterium tumefaciens C58 consists of a circular chromosome, a linear chromosome, and two plasmids. Extensive orthology and nucleotide colinearityExpand

The sequence and de novo assembly of the giant panda genome
Using next-generation sequencing technology alone, we have successfully generated and assembled a draft sequence of the giant panda genome. The assembled contigs (2.25 gigabases (Gb)) coverExpand
