Materials: Fosmid & BAC Libraries For Sibling Species
Genomic fosmid libraries were constructed for the BDGP by Andreas Gnirke at Exelixis, Inc. (South San Francisco) from Drosophila erecta, D. pseudoobscura, D. virilis, and D. willistoni. Libraries and clones are availabe from the BACPAC Resources Center.
A genomic BAC library was constructed from the D. pseudoobscura stock Tucson 14011-0121.94. Partial EcoRI and randomly sheared fragments, average insert size 152 and 156 kb, respectively.
