Info • Dictyostelium purpureum QSDP1 v1.0


v1.0 (August 18 2008): The draft assembly release version 1.0 of whole genome shotgun reads was constructed with Arachne, using paired end sequencing reads at an average coverage of 8.41X. After trimming for vector and quality, the sequencing reads assembled into 799 main genome scaffolds totaling 33.0 MB. Roughly half of the genome is contained in 156 scaffolds all at least 67 kbp in length.

The draft annotation release version 1.0 (12 February 2007) includes a total of 12410 gene models predicted and functionally annotated using the JGI Annotation Pipeline.
