Project Summary

The XGC is a trans-NIH initiative whose goals are to provide genomic resources to the Xenopus laevis and Xenopus tropicalis community. The program has a number of components including:

  • The generation of libraries from different stages of development and adult tissues.
  • Sequencing of ~3,000 to 10,000 5 and 3' ESTs from each library.
  • All sequences are deposited into GenBank. The corresponding clones are available through the IMAGE clone distribution network and are fully accessible to the community.
  • Analysis of all available sequences into UniGene clusters.
  • Selection of candidate complete open reading frame (ORF) clones and their sequencing.
