Please use BioProject link instead since the sequences have all be finalized:
As part of our continued collaboration with the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Kenema Government Hospital and the VHFC, we’re continuing our early release of EBOV genomes sequenced at the Broad Institute.
This release contains all the EBOV genomes sequenced from December 2014 to March 2015:
152 early-mid release genomes containing all sequenced samples that gave us ‘reasonable’ assemblies (including 99 previously released).
124 mid-release genomes that contain only the highest assembly genomes contained in the 152 samples above.
The sequences can be downloaded here:
High quality only:
The sequences were generated by 101bp PE Illumina sequencing using the protocols described in the Gire et al. and Matranga et al. papers. The genomes were assembled using Trinity, followed by an alignment refinement step with NovoAlign.
We are in the process of gathering metadata, but at this moment we don’t have any exact dates or other metadata for the individual samples.
Please note that this is an early release, so accuracy can’t be guaranteed at this stage.
Please feel free to download, share, use, and analyze this data. We are currently in the process of preparing a publication and will post progress on this forum. If you intend to use these sequences for publication prior to the release of our paper, please contact us directly. If you are interested in joining our collaboration - or if you have any other questions - then please also contact us directly.
