The production phase of the public mouse (C57BL/6J) genome sequencing effort has been under way since fall 2000 and is advancing rapidly. Francis S. Collins, director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), distributed an open letter to the mouse community in the summer of 2001 to describe progress to that point. Production of the Mouse Genome Monthly newsletter began in November 2001, and will continue on a (roughly) monthly schedule, with the goal of informing the scientific community about progress in sequencing and annotating the mouse genome, and to provide updates on the availability of information and resources generated by this project.
