The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) currently supports a project aimed at producing a draft assembly of the genomic sequence of the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum. The genome will be sequenced to 6- to 8-fold sequence depth. The beetle sequencing project is being led by researchers at the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center.
