Turkey Genome and Transcriptome

As part of an international team of research scientists, these researchers are working to refine the whole genome sequence (WGS) of the turkey and to annotate its transcriptome. Using next-generation sequencing approaches, they are adding to the WGS through focused BAC sequencing. Transcriptome analysis utilizes RNA-seq approaches in the context of several experimental models.
