DDBJ (DNA Data Bank of Japan) released chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) chromosome 22 genomic nucleotide sequence data on October 7.
Sequencing was conducted by the following eight institutions: two Japanese groups (RIKEN GSC and National Institute of Genetics), three German groups (Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, German Center for Biotechnology, and Institute of Molecular Biotechnology), Chinese National Human Genome Center
at Shanghai, Korean Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology (KRIBB), and National Yang-Ming University at Taipei.
Chimpanzee chromosome 22 corresponds to human chromosome 21, and determination of entire chromosomal genomic sequence is the first for non-human primates.
Accession numbers released from DDBJ are BS000001-BS000245. You can retrieve above entries via DDBJ getentry system:http://getentry.ddbj.nig.ac.jp/top-e.html
