The Sanger Centre has completed the initial shotgun of the genome of
Campylobacter jejuni NCTC 11168. At present there are 28 contigs over 
1kb, totalling 1.644 Mb (approx 97% of the genome).

The sequences can be searched at, or retrieved from, the Sanger Centre 
web site at:


Information about other microbial genomes being sequenced at the Sanger
Centre is available from:


Available at present are the complete sequence of Mycobacterium
tuberculosis H37Rv, assembly data covering 98% of Neisseria meningitidis
serogroup A strain Z2491 (94 contigs totalling 2.176 Mb), and 1900 reads
from the library testing stage of the shotgun sequencing of Yersinia 
pestis strain CO-92 Biovar Orientalis. Cosmid sequences from the 
genomes of Mycobacterium leprae and Streptomyces coelicolor are also

All of these databases are updated weekly.
