This page contains links to many of the genomes we have assembled at CBCB. The "Data download" link will take you to a page where you can get the assembly of the genome itself, along with genome annotation (in some cases). The "Lab notes" link on some of these genomes contains information about the particular techniques and tricks we used to assemble each genome.See the Genome Assembly page for more information on our research on assembly algorithms.
Drosophila (fruit fly) endosymbionts
Steven Salzberg and colleagues identified the sequence of the bacterial endosymbiont Wolbachia within the publicly available sequence data of several species of fruit fly. These results were reported in the open access journal Genome Biology:
Salzberg, S.L., Hotopp, J.C., Delcher, A.L., Pop, M., Smith, D.R., Eisen, M.B., Nelson, W.C. (2005) Serendipitous discovery of Wolbachia genomes in multiple Drosophila species. Genome Biol 6 (3):R23.
The assemblies of the endosymbiont genomes were performed with AMOScmp, and they can be obtained from:
Wolbachia endosymbiont of Drosophila annanasae - GenBank entry
Wolbachia endosymbiont of Drosophila simulans - GenBank entry
Wolbachia endosymbiont of Drosophila willistoni - (contigs) (trace IDs)
