Study Description

We have carried out complete sequencing of the genome of the human male maligant melanoma cell line COLO-829 using the Illumina Genome Analyzer II. We generated a sequencing library with a median insert size of ~200 bp following random fragmentation and gel fractionation of the genomic DNA. We sequenced 75 bases from both ends of these templates to cover the COLO-829 genome to an average depth of more than 40x. We have carried out purity-filtering (PF) to remove mixed reads, where two or more different template molecules are close enough on the surface of the flow-cell to form a mixed or overlapping cluster. No other filtering of the data has been carried out prior to submission. We have also submitted sequence data for a lymphoblastoid control cell line COLO-829BL from the same individual.
