About the Project
The BCM-HGSC has sequenced chromosomes 6 and 10 of the laboratory mouse (Mus musculus).
The genome sequence of the mouse was produced by the Mouse Genome Sequencing Consortium. BCM-HGSC finished 178Mb of redundant sequence or ~120 Mb of unique sequence for the mouse project that was completed in December 2005.
Funding for this project was provided by the NIH.
Access to the Data
Individual matched sequences (reads or assemblies) can be retrieved from the BCM-HGSC FTP site or from the NCBI Trace Archive using links below.
A three-way comparison of rat and human to mouse chromosomes found using Pash is available for browsing.
