The Felis catus whole genome shotgun (WGS) project has the project accession ACBE00000000. This version of the project (01) has the accession number ACBE01000000, and consists of sequences ACBE01000001-ACBE01604560.
This assembly adds 0.9X coverage to the 1.9X coverage of the previous cat assembly (WGS project AANG00000000 of the Abyssinian cat 'Cinnamon'). The 0.9X coverage comes from six other breeds and one wild cat from paired-end fosmid ABI 3730 reads. The entire 2.8X coverage was assembled and mapped to the cat genome as described in Pontius et al. (2007). Genome Res: 17, 1675-1689 (PubMed ID 17975172). This assembly was a necessary step towards the primary goal of discovering SNPs.
Scaffolds GG658199-GG661873 are the components of the chromosomes, CM000695-CM000713, and unplaced multi-component scaffolds.
