August 2013, Annotation Release 103

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

Bos taurus (cow) is an agriculturally important animal; beef and milk production are the largest manufacturing industries in the United States. The cow is an important model organism for health research in obesity, female health, and infectious diseases. Cow is also used in studies of endocrinology, physiology and reproductive techniques. The cow genome will be useful for comparative genomics, representing a non-primate, non-rodent eutherian genome. The B. taurus genome is estimated to be 3000 MB, organized in 29 pairs of autosomes and two sex chromosomes. Bovine chromosomes are acrocentric.

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. For some species, additional non-sequence maps such as Genetic maps, Radiation hybrid maps, and others may be available.
