the Schistosoma Genome Network is pleased to announce that the results of
cluster analyses of all S. mansoni and S. japonicum sequences on the public
databases as of 14/07/98 (5223 S. mansoni sequences, 724 S. japonicum
sequences) are available on the WWW at:
Each cluster is supported by hypertext linked files containing:
an overview graphicshowing relative positions and orientation of its
constituent sequences (actually a text file so it loads fast)
a consensus sequence for the contig
the alignment of the constituent sequences
the sequence of each constituent sequence (plus links to the full records
at EBI and NCBI).
We hope that you find the data of value and interest.
With best wishes,
