The mustard plant and the zebrafish are done, the water flea should be finished by the end of the year, and the Jamaican fruit-eating bat is still up in the air. That's the status of projects to sequence these organisms' genomes. This new site from the International Sequencing Consortium tracks the progress of sequencing efforts around the world, listing each project's scheduled or actual completion date and what techniques it is using. Links connect to the group performing the work, the funding sources, and, for completed projects, the final sequence.
