This track shows the sequences used in the Jul. 2014 rat genome assembly.
Genome assembly procedures are covered in the NCBI
NCBI also provides
specific information about this assembly.
The definition of this assembly is from the
AGP file delivered with the sequence. The NCBI document
AGP Specification describes the format of the AGP file.
In dense mode, this track depicts the contigs that make up the
currently viewed scaffold.
Contig boundaries are distinguished by the use of alternating gold and brown
coloration. Where gaps
exist between contigs, spaces are shown between the gold and brown
blocks. The relative order and orientation of the contigs
within a scaffold is always known; therefore, a line is drawn in the graphical
display to bridge the blocks.
Component types found in this track (with counts of that type in parentheses):
- W - whole genome shotgun (73,736)
- D - draft sequence (1,300)
- F - finished sequence (1,116)
- A - active finishing (42)
- O - one other sequence (chrM/AY172581.1)
