Start Date: Jan 01, 2008
End Date: Dec 31, 2012
Large DNA-insert BAC libraries of the highly inbred genetic standard, TM-1, will be constructed and assembled into contigs to create a physical map. Minimum tiling path (MTP) BAC clones from selected contigs will be sequenced, and the assembled and annotated data will provide the complete cotton genome sequence with the gene content and distribution.
