Organism Ranking
Common Name Scientific Name
Chicken Gallus gallus High Priority
Chimpanzee Pan troglodytes High Priority
Cow Bos taurus High Priority
Dog Canis familiaris High Priority
Fungi Cryptococcus neoformans, Serotype A The entire proposal to sequence fifteen fungal species was given High Priority. GRASPP encouraged additional thought regarding the specific choices of species. The first seven species in this list were suggested for sequencing by the panel. However, the final choice is left to the submitters of the proposal.
Pneumocystis carinii (human and mouse)
Magnaporthe grisea
Aspergillus nidulans
Fusarium graminearum
Coprinus cinereus
Ustilago maydis
Coccidiodes posadasii
Trichophyton rubrum
Rhizopus oryzae
Aspergillus flavus
Aspergillus terreus
Neurospora discreta
Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis
Paxillus involutus
Honey Bee Apis mellifera High Priority
Ciliate Oxytricha trifallax (macronucleus equivalent micronucleus sequences) High Priority
Sea Urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus High Priority
Lower Metazoan Tetrahymena thermophila macronucleus High Priority
Placozoa Trichoplax adhaerens Moderate Priority
