24X “Morex” Barley Shotgun Assembly Now Available for BLAST

Professor Tim Close, UC Riverside, led a team that has produced a partial genome sequence assembly generated using the software SOAPdenovo (soap.genomics.org.cn/soapdenovo.html) from 24X coverage of the “Morex” barley genome. This genome assembly  is now available for BLAST through www.harvest-blast.org and sequence retrieval through www.harvest-web.org/utilmenu.wc including an option to receive the entire assembly. This assembly is the outcome of a USDA-NIFA project entitled "Advancing the Barley Genome" and is one of many rapidly developing advances from the International Barley Sequencing Consortium (www.barley-genome.org). For additional information on the 24X Morex barley assembly, refer to Barley Genetics Newsletter (2011) 41:10-11 (http://wheat.pw.usda.gov/ggpages/bgn/41/Alpert.htm.)
