Method "Assembly of 6.22 million sequence reads from the genomic DNA of a male standard poodle yielded 1.09 million contigs and 0.85 million singletons. The dog sequences described in this paper have been assigned GenBank accession numbers AACN010000001 to AACN011089636 and CE000001 to CE853796."
Comments "Comparative map of the 40 dog chromosomes overlaid with mouse and human genomes. Each dog chromosome is represented twice, and overlaid with either human (left) or mouse (right) genomic segments."
