Genomes of 20 European D. melanogaster strains.

Posted by

As part of an ongoing efforts to characterize genetic diversity in the nuclear and cytoplasmic genomes of D. melanogaster, the Bergman and Haddrill Labs have collaborated to sequence the complete genomes of 20 D. melanogaster isofemale strains. It was too much to bear for a JEDI not to have a proper sample of European Drosophila melanogaster available for population genetic analysis, so we decided to roll up our sleeves and collect one ourselves. For pre-release access and more information about these genomes, please see this post.
