10K Genomes Project to Create Vertebrate Genome Zoo - November 2009
As DNA sequencing costs decline, a group of research biologists has pondered reading evolution's notebooks in the genomes of thousands of vertebrate species. Using a workshop to organize their ideas, the group has proposed The 10K Genomes Project in a paper published Nov. 5 in the Journal of Heredity. A conversation with proposal article co-authors Eric Green M.D., Ph.D., and Adam Felsenfeld, Ph.D.
