Abstract

An international consortium is the driving force behind several new genome-related projects, mainly focused on Eimeria tenella, the cause of avian, caecal coccidiosis. The largest project is a whole genome shotgun project, which is at 8.3-fold coverage, and is complemented by complete sequencing of the two smallest E. tenella chromosomes and the provision of a physical framework through HAPPY mapping. The derivation of expressed sequence tags from various developmental stages of E. tenella and other avian Eimeria species is under way and a comprehensive annotation of the entire genome will begin in 2004.
