Assembly dataNote: most of these projects are older projects done when many of us were at the Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (CBCB) at the University of Maryland. For newer assembly projects, see the Salzberg lab page, https://salzberg-lab.org/genome-projects.
GAGE and GAGE-B are evaluations of contiguity and accuracy of assemblies that are generated by some of most commonly used genome assemblers. GAGE-B (for assemblies of bacterial organisms) follows the standards set by GAGE.
This page contains links to many of the genomes we have assembled.
The "Data download" link will take you to a page where you can get the assembly of the genome itself,
along with genome annotation (in some cases).
Drosophila (fruit fly) endosymbiontsSteven Salzberg and colleagues identified the sequence of the bacterial endosymbiont Wolbachia within the publicly available sequence data of several species of fruit fly. These results were reported in the open access journal Genome Biology:
Salzberg, S.L., Hotopp, J.C., Delcher, A.L., Pop, M., Smith, D.R., Eisen, M.B., Nelson, W.C. (2005) Serendipitous discovery of Wolbachia genomes in multiple Drosophila species. Genome Biol 6 (3):R23.
The assemblies of the endosymbiont genomes were performed with AMOScmp, and they can be obtained from:Wolbachia endosymbiont of Drosophila annanasae - GenBank entry
Wolbachia endosymbiont of Drosophila simulans - GenBank entry
Wolbachia endosymbiont of Drosophila willistoni - (contigs) (traceIDs)
