The Sino-Danish pig genome sequencing project has generated a resource of 3.8
million shotgun reads 0.66 coverage and approximately 1 million EST sequences.
Due to the funding from The National Committee of Pig Breeding, Health and
Production it was possible to establish the Sino-Danish pig genome project which
originally was a collaboration between the Beijing Genomics Institute, the Royal
Veterinary and Agricultural University (now University of Copenhagen, faculty of
Life Sciences) and the Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences (now University
of Aarhus, faculty of Agricultural Sciences). The Technical University of
Denmark and University of Aarhus were concurrently involved in the project.
Here is a short list of generated resources:
