Genome projects

Looking for human genes? The CHESS human gene database has its own page, 

Our group has been assembling genomes for many years, ranging from tiny (viruses and bacteria) to enormous (pine trees). This continues to be a very active area for the lab. Here we list some of the genomes that we’ve assembled along with the publications. 

Virtually all of the projects listed here are collaborations with other labs; see the publications for a list of all the scientists involved on each one. Many older genomes are not listed here, including dozens of genomes sequenced when the lab was at TIGR (1997-2005) and the University of Maryland (2005-11), and hundreds of influenza virus genomes sequenced at TIGR for the Influenza Genome Sequencing Project, which our lab co-founded.
