At present, none of the contigs from the current public WGS assembly have been placed on chromosomes so you cannot browse the sequence data by chromosome. You can find sequenced regions of interest by:

  • querying Map Viewer for a known gene name or symbol, e.g. ACSM4
  • querying Map Viewer for accession numbers, e.g. XM_004704138 or NW_004558765
  • searching Gene for small Madagascar hedgehog genes that have been annotated on the genome, and using the Map Viewer link to view the Gene region.
  • searching by sequence using BLAST against the genome. Results from a BLAST sequence alignment can be displayed in Map Viewer by following the link in "Related Information" to the right of the alignment.

In November 2012, the Broad Institute submitted EchTel2.0, a 78x genome assembly of a female small Madagascar hedgehog. The small Madagascar hedgehog genome is composed 17 pairs of autosomes and a pair of sex chromosomes, X and Y.

The mitochondrial genome sequence is available as NC_002631.2.

The NCBI Map Viewer provides graphical displays of features on the small Madagascar hedgehog genome sequence assembly. Map features that can be seen along the sequence include NCBI contigs (the 'Contig' map), the WGS sequences (the 'Component' map), and the location of aligned transcripts from human ('Hs_RNA') and all species within Afrotheria ('Afrotheria_RNA'). The 'Gene' map includes both known genes and putative genes based on supported Gnomon gene predictions. The complete set of Gnomon predicted gene models can be viewed on the 'Model Transcripts' map. Further documentation is provided on the small Madagascar hedgehog genome data and search tips page and through the links below to describe the resource features and methods used, tutorials, and statistics.

The Search bar or the BLAST search link above can be used to find annotation or sequence in the assembly. The sequence-based maps for any contig of interest can then be displayed. Results are indicated in a tabular format. The results table includes links to a contig graphical view where the gene or marker can be seen in the context of additional data.

Please note that other genomes can also be viewed in the NCBI Map Viewer resource. The Map Viewer Home Page provides a current list.
