Public release of pig genomic sequences

Beijing Genomics Institute (BGI) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Danish Committee of Pig Breeding and Production (DCPBP) jointly announce the public release of pig genomic sequences. The released sequence data include 3.84 million pieces of the genomes of five different domestic pig breeds from Europe and China. The data are generated from the first large scale pig genome sequencing effort, the Sino-Danish Pig Genome Project, started in 2001 on the basis of a long standing collaboration of scientists and research institutions from China and Denmark.

An open access research article from the Sino-Danish Pig Genome Project can be found at: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2164/6/70 and the genome sequence data are immediately accessible from the NCBI Trace Repository (Center name: "SDJVP"; Project name: "Sino-Danish Pig Genome Project") and GenBank, a public DNA sequence database of the US National Institutes of Health.

In addition to the genome survey, 100 libraries of expressed sequences from different pig tissues and developmental stages have been analyzed. These sequences will be released in the near future together with a publication on pig gene expression.

This far, the pig sequence data have been obtained thanks to an investment of app. 10 million US$ by CAS and DCPBP together with the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Natural Science Foundation of China.

The research indicates that pig is genetically closer to man than normally used laboratory animals. This has important implications for the use of pigs in medical research and drug testing. Thus, the availability of the pig sequence data will allow other public and private researchers to identify many important aspects relating to biomedical research as well as to production, food safety and animal health traits that will greatly benefit health care, industry and consumers.

The Sino-Danish Pig Genome Project has been one of the best examples of i
