The Hoatzin Genome Project

Statistics Describing Hoatzin Sequencing-Reads Mapped to the Chicken Reference Genome 454 results

Hoatzin Mapped to Chicken Genome Browser 454 results (name = guest, password = guest)

Mitochondrial Genome 454 results (password required)

Genome Browser Instructions: Select chromosome by link, highlight section of reference genome in "Overview" or "Details"(too large of a selection will slow the response) or type in locus, "Expand and Label" if desired using "Configure Tracks" link

Genome Sequencing Progress (updated August 2011):

total 454 bases sequenced >1.658 Gigabases (>1X coverage, 6X in progress)

total Illumina coverage 100X
