These USMARC WGS reads are mapped to the UMD3.1 bovine genome assembly of Hereford female L1 Dominette 01449 as part of a USDA ARS Specific Cooperative Agreement with Intrepid Bioinformatics in collaboration with the University of Louisville

The WGS of animals from the 27 additional breeds are currently in progress and access will be made available first at this site via IGV.  As data sets are validated for identity and quality, the FASTQ files will be deposited in the SRA at NCBI and be available as part of BioProject PRJNA324822
