Type de programme: 
International

The eel genome project has been founded by an international consortium (Netherlands, France, Japan, Norway).

The draft genomes of two eel species, the European eel, Anguilla anguilla, and the Japanese eel, Anguilla japonica, have been sequenced using the Illumina method.

The ongoing project includes further assembly of the European eel genome by using ew methodologies for direct sequencing and analysis of Megabase size DNA.

The consortium is also organising international conferences and workshops on eel genomics and transcriptomics.

Coordinators: Prof G. van den Thillart, and Dr R. Dirks, University of Leiden, Society ZF-Screen/ ZF-Genomics, Netherlands
