January 2014, Annotation Release 102

This full annotation run includes the following assembly(ies):

The honey bee (Apis mellifera) is a valuable organism for study due to its unique behavioral traits and social instincts. A. mellifera is important to the agricultural community as a pollinator and to researchers as a model for studies in immunity and diseases of the X chromosome. These characteristics of the honey bee were instrumental in its assignment as a high priority organism for genome sequencing by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI).

The NCBI Map Viewer provides graphical displays of features on the genome assembly. Map features that can be seen along the sequence include annotated genes and transcripts, Gnomon-predicted gene and transcript models, aligned transcript and genomic sequences, RefSeq scaffolds (the 'Contig' map), the assembly tiling path (the 'Component' map), and more.

The Solignac_3 microsatellite-based linkage map (AmelMap3) was generated by localizing each marker in the position of the chromosome which contains that marker using the data provided by Michel Solignac and his colleagues at the Laboratory Evolution, Genomes and Speciation, CNRS, France. The linkage map for honey bee was constructed mainly from the progeny of two hybrid queens (A. m. ligustica x A. m. mellifera). These are distinguished as follows: b: queen blanche, v: queen verte, d: les deux (both). The sixteen linkage groups displayed in Map Viewer are comprised of 2008 markers, the majority of which are microsatellite markers with a smaller number of RAPD markers and markers generated by PCR from primer pairs.

The Hunt linkage map was constructed from data generated in the lab of Greg Hunt in the Department of Entomology, Purdue University, Indiana. The map was constructed with about one third RAPD and two thirds AFLP markers, along with 42 microsatellites. There are 1110 markers covering over 4996 cM in 25 linkage groups. Additional information on the Hunt linkage map and its markers is available here.
