N&H TOPLINE: New tool revolutionizes mapping of complete animal genomes

New method, particularly suited to avian species, enables geneticists to assemble a complete chromosome-level genome by using universal probes.

Researchers at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) and the University of Kent in the U.K. have developed a new cost-effective approach to mapping and assembling genomes using a novel method that is particularly effective for bird species.

Developed with funding from the U.K.'s Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), this new method enables geneticists to assemble complete (chromosome-level) genome assemblies.

Genetics studies have long faced the major
