Sequencing Solanaceae lycopersicum Cultivar Heinz 1706-BG at the University of Oklahoma
The approximately 950 Mb tomato, Solanaceae lycopersicum, genome (see the SOL Genomics Network web site) is being sequenced by the
International Tomato Sequencing Consortium as part of the International Solanaceae Genomics Project (SOL).
Here is the link to the Tomato Genome BAC-by-BAC Sequencing Statistics
at the solgenomics.net site at the Boyce Thompson Institute USDA/ARS and to our
Solanum lycopersicum Sequencing Progress at OU web page.
The following are links to a JBrowse genome browser for Tomato Chromosomes 1, 2, 3, 5, and 10.

The US group consist of:
We are funded by NSF grant #0820612 to contribute to the whole genome shotgun initiative as well as sequence chromosomes 1 and 10 using a combined mapped BAC-based and WGS approach.
- Jim Giovannoni, PI, at the Boyce Thompson Institute USDA/ARS, and Co-PIs
- Bruce Roe at the University of Oklahoma,
- Joyce Van Eck at Cornell University,
- Lukas Miller at Cornell University, and
- Steve Stack at Colorado State University
- In the summer of 2009, we begun receiving well characterized Solanaceae lycopersicum
BACs from Jim Giovannoni's group at the Boyce Thompson Institute at Cornell University, Ithica, NY.
- Our present plan is to sequence each of these BACs to completion All of the data
will be released into GenBank following the Bermuda Rules and links to this
data are provided at
- Our trace data for the whole genome shotgun reads on the 454 is available in
the NCBI Sequence Read Archive at
