Turkey Genome Sequencing Consortium awarded $0.9 million from USDA
Date:11/23/2009

As a result of this combined effort, we have now generated about 90 percent of the genome sequence and we plan to release the preliminary data to GenBank at the earliest opportunity to make it available to the scientific community."

Turkey is the fourth most economically important source of meat for consumers in the United States. The genome sequence and genomic resources should provide turkey breeders with the tools needed to improve commercial breeds of turkey for production traits such as meat yield and quality, health and disease resistance, and fertility and reproduction.

Ed Smith, professor in the Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences at Virginia Tech, commented: "Over the years, the USDA has funded several projects that have been instrumental in establishing a framework for the complete sequencing and assembly of the turkey genome. The new award provides the crucial support needed to put in place a definitive genetic map of the turkey genome, a map that will serve as a vital resource for the poultry community and other interested scientists around the world."

Kent Reed, associate professor of veterinary and biomedical sciences at the University of Minnesota, commented: "An exciting prospect of this sequencing effort is the ability to compare the turkey genome with those of other species. Results from the initial sequencing are already making an impact on our research. The new sequence will not only provide information on the turkey genome, but will also help refine the chicken genome sequence."
