About the Project

The BCM-HGSC is sequencing the genome of the sifaka lemur (Propithecus coquereli).

A high quality draft assembly of the reference genome will be produced from a single sample of Propithecus coquereli, using read data generated using the Illumina platform.  In addition to the deep genome sequence coverage of the reference sifaka, BCM-HGSC is generating whole genome sequences from additional sifaka individuals in order to identify DNA sequence variation for this species.
