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. Scap
  • querying Map Viewer for accession numbers, e.g. NM_001244036 or NW_003614047
  • searching Gene for Chinese hamster 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 clicking on the Genome View button or on the accession numbers of the results.

May 2014, Annotation Release 101

This full annotation run includes the following assemblies:

The Chinese hamster (Cricetulus griseus) is a rodent found in the deserts of northern China and Mongolia. The Beijing Genomics Institute submitted both CriGri_1.0, a 130x genome assembly of the CHO-K1 cell line, and C_griseus_v1.0, an 89x genome assembly of female Chinese hamster DNA. CHO-K1 cells are derived from the original CHO (Chinese hamster ovary) cell line, which was isolated from the Chinese hamster in 1958. The submitted haploid genome has a size of 2.4 Gb. The Chinese hamster genome is composed of 10 pairs of autosomes and a pair of sex chromosomes, X and Y.

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.
