Last July, a white paper proposal
was submitted on behalf of the vole research community to convince NHGRI to generate a draft assembly of the prairie vole genome. This proposal has been officially approved and prairie voles have been added to the list of approved NHGRI sequencing targets
. Congratulations to everyone who contributed to this important project!
