About the Project
The BCM-HGSC has sequenced the genome of the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus).
The low-coverage (2x) Sanger sequence of the dolphin was published as a part of the 29 mammals project (Nature). The genome has been upgraded to a high quality draft sequence and is being prepared for publication.
Access to the Data
All sequence reads are deposited in the NCBI trace archive as they are produced. Assemblies of contigs and scaffolds, as well as Blast access to the data will be made available here and at the relevant public databases as soon as they are produced.
