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.
