Neisseria gonorrhoeae Genome Sequencing
Strain FA 1090

One contiguous sequence 2,153,922 bp, GenBank Acc. No. AE004969

On 08-02-00 one contiguous sequence was obtained when the final gaps in the sequence were closed. This sequence now is at HTGS phase 3 and annotation is underway. On 09-18-00 the sequence was circularized and then manually linearized to begin at the DNA-A gene.

This joint project being completed as a collaboration between our laboratory at the University of Oklahoma, Norman Campus's Advanced Center for Genome Technology, in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, which is funded in part by an NSF EPSCoR grant, and Dr. Dave Dyer's laboratory in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. This project is funded by USPHS NIH grant #AI38399.

Neisseria gonorrhoeae Genome Sequencing Progress

Sequence Annotation

In collaboration with Evgeni Selkov and Ross Overbeek at Argonne National Labs, we now are providing a WIT2 analysis of the potential reading frames and an overview of the Neisseria gonorrhoeae metabolic pathways.
