Information about Sequencing Projects

Genome 10K projectGenome 10K project

"The Genome 10K project aims to assemble a genomic zoo—a collection of DNA sequences representing the genomes of 10,000 vertebrate species, approximately one for every vertebrate genus."

The 1KP ProjectThe 1KP Project

"The 1000 plants (oneKP or 1KP) initiative is a public-private partnership generating large scale gene sequence information for 1000 different species of plants."

1000 Genomes1000 Genomes

"The goal of the 1000 Genomes Project is to find most genetic variants that have frequencies of at least 1% in the populations studied."

1001 Genomes1001 Genomes

"The 1001 Genomes Project, launched at the beginning of 2008, has as a goal to discover the whole-genome sequence variation in 1001 strains (accessions) of the reference plant Arabidopsis thaliana.""

959 Nematode Genomes959 Nematode Genomes

"Our intention is to encourage genome sequencing across the diversity of the phylum Nematoda." 959 Nematodes provides tables and access to published, ongoing, and proposed nematode genome sequencing projects.

i5ki5k Insect and other Arthropod Genome Sequencing Initiative

"The i5k initiative plans to sequence the genomes of 5,000 insect and related arthropod species over the next 5 years. (started 2011) This project will be transformative because it aims to sequence the genomes of all insect species known to be important to worldwide agriculture, food safety, medicine, and energy production; all those used as models in biology; the most abundant in world ecosystems; and representatives in every branch of insect phylogeny so as to achieve a deep understanding of arthropod evolution and phylogeny."

Genomes Online DatabaseGenomes OnLine Database

"GOLD is a World Wide Web resource for comprehensive access to information regarding complete and ongoing genome projects around the world." GOLD comprises information about the three major lineages of the tree life.

International Sequencing ConsortiumInternational Sequencing Consortium

"The ISC has established the Web site to provide a single, central site for the scientific community and the public to have access to up-to-date information about animal, plant and other eukaryotic genomic sequencing projects."

Genome News NetworkGenome News Network

"The genomes of more than 180 organisms have been sequenced since 1995. The Quick Guide includes descriptions of these organisms and has links to sequencing centers and scientific abstracts."

Taxonomy Databases

NCBI Taxonomy BrowserNCBI Taxonomy Browser

All the taxonomic relationships between the species have been taken from NCBI's Taxonomy Database regardless of newer (and more acurrate) placings of the species described in various publications.

Tree of Life Web ProjectTree of Life Web Project

"The Tree of Life Web Project is a collaborative effort of biologists from around the world. On more than 4000 World Wide Web pages, the project provides information about the diversity of organisms on Earth, their evolutionary history (phylogeny), and characteristics."
