The genome sequence of the chicken DT40 bursal lymphoma cell line

About the DT40 Genome homepage

The chicken DT40 cell line is a widely used model system in the study of multiple cellular processes due to efficient homologous gene targeting in these cells (Buerstedde and Takeda, 1991). The cell line was derived from a bursal lymphoma induced by avian leukosis virus infection (Baba et al., 1985). In this homepage a de novo assembly of the DT40 genome can be downloaded or BLAST searched. Further files with information about the DT40 genome and web links are also provided.
