Genome 10K Project
To understand how complex animal life evolved through changes in DNA and use this knowledge to become better stewards of the planet
Genome 10K is a project to sequence the genome of at least one individual from each vertebrate genus, approximately 10,000 genomes. It is a key milestone on the way toward the Vertebrate Genomes Project, the project to find and sequence at least one individual from each of the approximately 66,000 vertebrate species.
The Genome 10K project: Assembling genomic data to understand vertebrate evolution and save dying species.
