On Oct 26, 2005 this sequence version replaced gi:61677293.

The Aedes aegypti whole genome shotgun (WGS) project has the project accession AAGE00000000. This version of the project (02) has the accession number AAGE02000000, and consists of sequences AAGE02000001-AAGE02036206.

The sequence for this assembly was produced jointly by The Broad Institute of Harvard/MIT and The Institute for Genomic Research. The assembly represents 7.6X sequence coverage of the genome and the total length of the contigs is 1.31 Gb. Additional information about the Aedes aegypti sequencing project and assembly can be found at and The annotation for this assembly was produced jointly by The Institute for Genomic Research and VectorBase with support from The Broad Institute of Harvard/MIT. Computational methods were optimized with respect to training datasets but gene models and functional assignments have not been manually curated. This release contains a high confidence subset of the gene models predicted, characterized by a minimum level of protein and/or EST support. Long-term curation of the sequence and subsequent annotation updates will be the responsibility of VectorBase at
