Bovine genome sequence available

... The Bovine Genome Sequencing Project, due for completion in 2005, will allow detailed tracking of the DNA differences between these breeds to assist discovery of traits for better meat and milk production and to model human disease. The initial assembly is based on 3.3-fold coverage of the bovine gen...

Vollum Institute discovery may unlock human genome

...a private genome sequencing company, announced the completion of the Human Genome Project more than two years ahead of schedule in April 2003. Between 20,000 and 25,000 genes coding for proteins that perform most life functions were found. But there was a problem. "That's not very many genes," Goodman said. "An...

How many comparative genomes are enough?

As the human genome sequence neared completion several years ago, geneticists eagerly began discussing which other organisms to sequence -- partly to see which DNA regions are similar across species and therefore likely to serve critical functions. But these discussions raised an important, and p...
