June 2, 1999

On May 28, 1999 28,049 Drosophila genome survey sequences were deposited from
Genoscope in France.  These are BAC end sequences.  The percent of the
genome sequenced as reported at the MOT tables jumped from 15% to 24%.  I have
had a chance to search these for P450 hits, but there should be a number of new
P450s in
this large sequence collection of 9% of the Drosophila genome.
