Genome 10K Project announces first 101 species for genome sequencing
Date:11/30/2010

SANTA CRUZ, CA--The Genome 10K Community of Scientists and BGI (formerly the Beijing Genomics Institute) of Shenzhen, China, have announced a plan to sequence the genomes of 101 vertebrate species within the next two years, the first of an eventual 10,000 species to be sequenced by the Genome 10K Project.

The Genome 10K Project (G10K) is an international effort to gather specimens of thousands of animals from zoos, museums, and university collections throughout the world, and then sequence the genome of each species to reveal its complete genetic heritage. The project aims to assemble a genomic zoo--a collection of DNA sequences for 10,000 vertebrate species (approximately one for every vertebrate genus) by 2015.

Genome 10K cofounder David Haussler, a professor of biomolecular engineering in the Baskin School of Engineering at UC Santa Cruz, said the first 101 species to be sequenced were selected from the Genome 10K database, which catalogs specimens suitable for sequencing from more than 16,000 vertebrate species, both living and recently extinct. (A list of the selected species is available for download.)

"These genomes will provide a new and exciting window into vertebrate biology," Haussler said. "The experiments of evolution represented in them carry critical information about how animals are built and how they function at the molecular level."

The planned sequencing will take place within the next 24 months at the BGI facilities in China. BGI has recently amassed the largest number of advanced DNA sequencing machines under one roof of any institute in the world and is committed to large-scale application of genome sequencing in science and medicine.

"With this joint pledge to accomplish whole-genome sequence assembly and annotation of 101 new vertebrate species--the first 1 percent of the Genome 10K target--we move much closer to providing students of biology the unabridged DNA code book for the wonder of li
