Vertebrate Genomes Project

The Vertebrate Genomes Project (VGP) at the Sanger Institute aims to provide reference quality assemblies for hundreds of fish, rodents and caecilians to contribute to the Tree of Life Sequencing effort. The current pilot focusses on cyprinids, cichliforms, notothenioid and anabantoid fishes, as well as select rodents and caecilians.
