This track shows the finished assembly of the C. elegans genome.
This assembly merges contigs from overlapping drafts and
finished clones into longer sequence contigs. The sequence
contigs are ordered and oriented when possible by mRNA, EST,
paired plasmid reads (from the SNP Consortium) and BAC end
sequence pairs. In the WS190 assembly, all the clones are finished
and are of clone type "F".
In dense mode, this track depicts the path through the
finished clones (aka the golden path) used to create the assembled sequence.
Clone boundaries are distinguished by the use of alternating gold and brown
coloration. There are no gaps in this assembly.
The May 2008 Caenorhabditis elegans assembly
is based on sequence version WS190 deposited into
as of 28 May 2008. The sequence was produced jointly by the Sanger
Institute in Hinxton, England and the
Genome Sequencing Center in St. Louis.
