Trask lab contributes to rat genome-sequencing project

April 15, 2004

Researchers in the Human Biology Division took part in an international collaboration to sequence the genome of the Norway rat, an important model for experimental medicine and drug development. The sequence is the third mammalian genome to be completed.

Drs. Barb Trask and Janet Young, postdoc in the Trask lab, contributed data about the rat's olfactory receptor gene family, which contains the instructions for proteins responsible for the animal's ability to perceive odors.

The analysis appears in the April 1 issue of Nature.
