Campylobacter jejuni genome finished
The Sanger Centre is pleased to announce the completion of the sequence of the food poisoning organism Campylobacter jejuni. The sequence is 1,641,480 bp in length (with 25 polymorphic regions), and was generated from 33,824 sequencing reads.
The complete sequence is available for searching and download from the C. jejuni website. Also available for searching and download is a preliminary set of predicted CDS. Further information is available for each predicted CDS including FASTA searches against the non-redundant protein database and against the database of predicted C. jejuni CDS's.
Please note that this data should be considered as preliminary until final publication. In particular the predicted CDS set will contain redundancies and overpredictions, and errors in assigning the proper start codon. The full annotation will be available after publication.
This project is funded by Beowulf Genomics.
More information on pathogenic microorganisms that are being sequenced by the Sanger Centre is available at the Microbes section of the Centre´s website.
