DOE JGI announces 2006 Community Sequencing Program portfolio

Walnut Creek, CA--Embedded in the language of DNA, the common link among all living things, are lessons for interpreting the complex systems that regulate the health of planet Earth. Now, rounding out this global lesson plan are more than 40 new genome projects, representing a cornucopia of life forms, from the important grain sorghum, to catfish, crustaceans, and a host of extreme lifestyle microbes, slated for DNA sequencing by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI).

"Through the Community Sequencing Program, we are leveraging the dramatic advances in genomic technology accrued since DOE launched the Human Genome Project nearly 20 years ago," said Dr. Raymond L. Orbach, director of the DOE Office of Science. "Our ability to generate DNA sequence, particularly over the last three years, has approached Moore's Law proportions--in effect, doubling every 18 months. These advances have enabled DOE JGI to emerge as one of the preeminent contributors to microbial and plant genomics."

"The Community Sequencing Program will provide tremendous value," said Dr. Aristides Patrinos, associate director of science for Biological and Environmental Research, "because it will serve the high priority sequencing needs of the broader scientific community while attracting scientists from many disciplines to study and solve problems that are important to the DOE missions of clean energy, bioremediation, and carbon sequestration."

The DOE JGI, already among the most productive genome sequencing centers in the world with more than 225 organisms to its credit, is poised to add significantly to this total and to the scientific literature through its Community Sequencing Program (CSP).

With the 2006 CSP allocation, DOE JGI will be making freely available to the greater scientific community 20 billion letters of genetic code (bases), roughly the equivalent of nearly seven human genomes of information. This year 135 proposals were submi
