GENOMIC RESOURCES.  Through collaborative work with David Thybert, Thomas Keane and a host of other investigators and scientists, ENSEMBL has released a chromosome-level assembly and annotation of the Acomys dimidiatus genome under the agreement that researchers will not publish a genome-wide analysis until we have published the genome.  A genome paper is currently being prepared. 





HUSBANDRY.  For those considering starting a research colony, a good place to start is a husbandry paper we published in the Journal of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (JAALAS). You can find a pdf of this paper on our publications page.
