The accompanying figure [See figure 2] illustrates the progress made in genomic sequencing to date. Cosmids (not drawn to scale) are shown at the top. Completed regions are ready for submission or have been submitted to the EMBL and GenBank databases. These completed regions have been analyzed by BLAST against the public databases, by Genefinder, and by comparison against the nematode cDNAs. Contiguous regions are contiguous sequences that have single stranded regions or problems such as compressions that have to be resolved. Shotgun regions consist of discontinuous fragments that can be searched by BLAST and cDNA comparison, but not by Genefinder. cDNA matches are shown by closed triangles for consortium clones and by open triangles for McCombie et al. clones. Significant similarities for BLAST are indicated. The total number of genes estimated by Genefinder analysis is shown for each completed segment.
