Genome Biol. 2011 Jul 28;12(7):406. doi: 10.1186/gb-2011-12-7-406.

Abstract

The Consortium for Snake Genomics is in the process of sequencing the genome and creating transcriptomic resources for the Burmese python. Here, we describe how this will be done, what analyses this work will include, and provide a timeline.
