We wish you all a Happy New Year with the announcement of some excellent news:

Thanks to Dan Rokhsar and colleagues at the Joint Genome Institute of 
the U.S. Department of Energy, we are anticipating completion of a 
rough draft of the entire C. reinhardtii nuclear genome sequence at 
6X-8X coverage by early summer 2002.

Pete Lefebvre has provided JGI with DNA for sequencing, and will be 
submitting an application to NIH for additional funds to support the 
sequencing and subsequent annotation.

Updates on this project will be posted on the Chlamy Genome Project web site at
