Planarian Genome Sequencing: Schmidtea mediterranea

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) currently supports a project aimed at producing a draft assembly of the genomic sequence of the planarian Schmidtea mediterranea. The genome will be sequenced to 6- to 8-fold sequence depth. The planarian sequencing project is being led by researchers at the Washington University (St. Louis) Genome Sequencing Center.
