Researchers celebrated the release of an important mammalian genome last week--that of a laboratory mouse called the "black 6." The Mouse Genome Sequencing Consortium announced 6 May that it has put together a draft of the C57BL/6J mouse genome that is 96% complete, and it is making the data available for free on the Internet.
