According to the Reg, the Chromosome 16 paper is out. I didn't have anything to do with 16, and from the list of contributors I don't think anyone I know did either.

If you're interested in which chromosomes have had this sort of paper published so far, there's a diagram here. (As you've probably guessed, this entry is mainly for my own reference - I'm going to shamelessly leave it public regardless, though).

Hang on a minute . . .

You bastards!

Nobody told me 13 was out! They'd bloody better have some reprints left . . .

[Slightly later]

Goddammit, how much more are they not telling me about?

And you are on the 13 author list.

It is funny when that happens. People forget to tell you about publications after you leave. OK as long as thye keep your name on author list...
My old boss knows how to get in touch. Actually a reasonable number of people there still do.

Bah. In the spring 9 & 10 came out in the same issue, and somebody posted me one up, which I was very grateful for.

keep your name on author list

Well, yes. That makes eight. Must update CV. And possibly leave copy lying around for new boss to see.
Yup, I noticed that. The reg article claims JGI was the first to publish something or other. They aren't very clear. Presumably, given the chart you posted (which doesn't show 16 highlighted yet even though it links to the paper), this was not 16 but a different chromosome, and they have now reached the end of their assigned list of chromosomes.
It is sixteen - the chart is (as of today) out of date now that the paper on the other end of the second link is out. Presumably it'll be updated in the new year. Nature comes out on Thursday, and two days before Christmas isn't a great time to catch everyone awake.

There used to be a nice chart on the Sanger's website of which areas of which chromosomes were being done by which centres. It doesn't seem to be there anymore.
No, no. I know this article is about 16. Presumably what JGI were *first* at was not 16, because 16 is just out now and some of the other papers on that chart are much older so 16 can't be the first one.
Gotcha. I'm being a little slow today, obviously.

I think what they meant (or what they should have meant) is that the JGI are the first of the Big Five to finish publishing papers on "their" chromosomes. The first to publish a paper was, of course [modest cough] us, but we've still got a couple to finish analysing - most obviously, the big one, Chromosome One, which is about a tenth of the genome on its own.
