End Date: Apr 30, 2014
1. Generate a draft genome from the SOLiD sequence data already acquired. 2. Create a new genomic library from the same accession, using 500 and/or 250 kb inserts, for Illumina/Solexa sequencing to improve the draft assembly. 3. Assemble the genome using bioinformatics. 4. Identify gene markers in the cranberry genome through Simple Sequence Repeats (SSRs) in the genome and isolate genes of interest.
