Links are provided for two concatenated FASTA files with our new subtelomere assemblies (1-15 K for just the 15 K where the sequence is adjacent to a telomere, and 1-500 K for the more extended subtelomere assemblies (which include the 1-15 K sequences, where available, as the initial part of the sequence). The sequences are oriented from telomere to centromere with coordinate 1 corresponding to the start of the telomere repeat tract, with any distal pure telomere repeat sequence left off.
A master spreadsheet with the clone-by-clone basis for the assemblies along with remaining gap information as well as other details is also provided.
New annotations of these assemblies are available here.
The microscope in the image belonged to William E. Horner, M.D., a collaborator with Caspar Wistar, M.D., in the early 1800s.
Dr. Horner, a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania, was a pioneer of the use of microscopes in anatomical and medical research. He authored Special Anatomy and Histology, a seminal text on the subject.
