Welcome to The Bovine Genome Database
A goal of the Bovine Genome Database project is to support the efforts of the Bovine Genome Sequencing and Analysis Consortium by creating a model organism database that integrates bovine genomics data with structural and functional annotations of genes and the genome. The Bovine Genome Database Consortium includes the University of Missouri and the University of Adelaide.
Assembly Btau_4.0, with 7.1X coverage, was released by the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center in October 2007. The Bovine Assembly 4.0 Scaffold and Chromosome browsers display the official gene set (OGSv2) and all gene prediction sets.
A genome browser for the UMD3.1 assembly is now available at BGD. Assembly UMD3.1 was created by the Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at the University of Maryland (CBCB).
