Project funding

This project has been funded by the Department of Biotechnology of the Ministry of Science and Technology in India.


As part of the physical mapping project for chromosome 2A, survey sequences comprising approximately 5x Roche 454 sequences and 100x Illumina paired end sequences were generated by The Genome Analysis Centre from flow-sorted chromosomal DNA prepared from 2AS and 2AL by Jaroslav Dolozel et al.

The data will be assembled and combined with BAC end sequences from chromosome 2A specific BACs to facilitate the assembly of the physical map.
