Myzus persicae genomic sequence data are being made available in advance of publication. These data should be regarded as preliminary, as they are incomplete and may contain errors. Please feel free to download as many individual sequences as are necessary for your research. However, the whole-genome analysis, comparison of the full data set to other genomes, and the initial publication of the Myzus persicae genome should be left to the investigators involved in this project.

This prepublication data release is in accordance with the Bermuda and Fort Lauderdale agreements and the more recent Toronto Statement (Toronto International Data Release Workshop 2009), which provides guidelines for both data generators and data users. The IAGC asks that users adhere to each of these policies and refrain from publishing any global analysis of the GPA genome. Global analysis includes the identification of complete (whole genome) sets of genomic features such as genes, gene families, regulatory elements, repeat structures and GC content. Global analysis also includes chromosome wide or whole-genome scale comparisons with other species and reassemblies of the GPA data.

Password access is provided so that we can report the number of distinct users of this site to our granting agencies. Individual sequence searches are not tracked or recorded.

If you write a publication involving Myzus persicae sequences downloaded from this site, please include the following statement in the acknowledgements section:

“DNA sequence data were downloaded from AphidBase, Funding for Myzus persicae clone G006 genomic sequencing was provided by USDA-NIFA award 2010-65105-20558.
Funding for Myzus persicae clone O genomic sequencing was provided by The Genome Analyses Centre (TGAC) Capacity and Capability Challenge programme project CCC-15 and BB/J004553/1 from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the John Innes Foundation.”
