The investigators and collaborators will utilize second generation DNA sequencing technology to produce sufficient amounts of DNA sequence from a homozygous catfish to permit efficient reassembly to recapitulate the original genome sequence. Existing sequence resources will be used to annotate and validate the assembly. The raw data and assembled genome will be placed in public databases.
