Genome Sequence of a Cichlid Fish : the Nile Tilapia ( Oreochromis niloticus ) Proposal to the JGI Community Sequencing Program February 25 , 2005 by the CICHLID GENOME CONSORTIUM

Who: The Cichlid Genome Consortium represents more than 100 laboratories in over 25 countries on 6 continents. What: We request the whole genome shotgun sequencing of the Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) to provide a high-quality reference sequence for cichlid fishes. The Nile tilapia is the obvious candidate for sequencing in this group, because of the… CONTINUE READING
