5,061

when and who
February 21, 2002

The Wellcome Trust Sainger Institute, The Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK

Led by Dr. Paul Nurse

Among the winners of the 2001 Nobel Prize for his research on the cell cycle in fission yeast

When and Who?
the sequencing
The Sequencing
  • Found on 50 different genes
  • 13.8 Mb (Megabases
  • Has 3 chromosomes
  • Chromosome I: 5.7 Mb
  • Chromosome II: 4.6 Mb
  • Chromosome III: 3.5 Mb
  • Contains lowest number of protein coding genes recorded for a Eukaryote
  • 4,824 protein-coding genes
  • 33 pseudogenes
  • G+C (guanine and cytosine) content: 36.0%
why was it sequenced
Why was it sequenced?
  • Associated with human diseases such as cancer, which is found on 23 of the 50 genes
  • Cystic Fibrosis, hereditary deafness, and diabetes
  • Protein-coding genes identified that generate products with similarities to proteins coded by 289 genes that are mutated, amplified or deleted in human disease.
