Construction of a highly enriched marsupial Y chromosome-specific BAC sub-library using isolated Y chromosomes

Sankovic, Natasha; Delbridge, Margaret; Grutzner, Frank; Ferguson-Smith, Malcolm A; O'Brien, Patricia C M; Graves, Jennifer


The Y chromosome is perhaps the most interesting element of the mammalian genome but comparative analysis of the Y chromosome has been impeded by the difficulty of assembling a shotgun sequence of the Y. B AC-based sequencing has been successful for the human and chimpanzee Y but is difficult to do efficiently for an atypical mammalian model species (Skaletsky et al. 2003, Kuroki et al. 2006). We show how Y-specific sub-libraries can be efficiently constructed using DNA amplified from...[Show more]
