The Nomascus leucogenys whole genome shotgun (WGS) project has the project accession ADFV00000000. This version of the project (01) has the accession number ADFV01000000, and consists of sequences ADFV01000001-ADFV01197908.
The members of the Gibbon Genome Sequencing Consortium are the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center and the Genome Sequencing Center at Washington University.
DNA for both the BAC library and the WGS sequence was isolated from blood provided by Alan Mootnick (Director, Gibbon Conservation Center, Santa Clarita, California) from a female named Asia (international studbook #0098), The CHORI-271 BAC Library was constructed by Boudewijn ten Hallers and Baoli zhu in Pieter deJong's laboratory (BACPAC Resources, Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute). DNA was sequenced using Sanger methods by the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center, and the Genome Center at Washington University. The genomic sequence was assembled by Sante Gnerre and David Reich (Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT) using the methods described (Genome Biology 2009; 10(8):R88). The mitochondrion was assembled by Yue Liu (BCM-HGSC) using Phrap (http://www.phrap.org); reads with similarity to mitochondrial sequences were assembled using Phrap with default parameters.
Funding for the sequencing of the white-cheeked gibbon genome was provided by the National Human Genome Research Institute, National Institutes of Health (NHGRI).
