We have a new resource page up at


that provides links to both the Chlamydomonas Genetics Center pages 
and the ongoing genome project, plus tools for searching and analysis 
of Chlamy sequences.  WU-BLAST can be run from the site on a dataset 
comprising all EST sequences from the Volvocales, or on assembled 
contigs from the NSF-sponsored EST project.  Text searches can also 
be performed on BLASTX results of the assembled EST contigs searched 
against the GenBank nr sequence set.  Another new feature on the 
resource page is a News column to provide updates on progress in the 
genome project.

The chloroplast genome sequence has been revised slightly since the 
first version was posted on the web in August.  The most significant 
change involves the Eco 13 and Eco 15 fragments spanning the ends of 
the inverted repeat region.  The revised sequence is available as a 
text file at


Please come visit these pages, and change your web browser bookmarks
