Sequencing of the Arabidopsis thaliana genome
The Arabidopsis Genome Initiative (AGI) has been launched to complete sequencing of the 120 Mb Arabidopsis genome by the year 2001, with the participation of 7 laboratories from the United States, 17 from the European Union, and one from Japan. The SGTC is participating in the AGI as a member of the SPP Consortium, composed of our group here at Stanford led by Ron Davis and Nancy Federspiel, the Arabidopsis thaliana Genome Center of Joseph Ecker at the University of Pennsylvania, and the Genome Sequencing Laboratory of Athanasios Theologis at the Plant Gene Expression Center/UC-Berkeley. The initial efforts of the SPP Consortium will focus on sequencing BAC clones from Chromosome 1.
