The genome sequence of the Norway rat, Rattus norvegicus Berkenhout 1769 [version 1; peer review: awaiting peer review]

Wellcome Open Research 2021
Howe K. et al

We present a genome assembly from an individual male Rattus norvegicus (the Norway rat; Chordata; Mammalia; Rodentia; Muridae). The genome sequence is 2.44 gigabases in span. The majority of the assembly is scaffolded into 20 chromosomal pseudomolecules, with both X and Y sex chromosomes assembled. This genome assembly, mRatBN7.2, represents the new reference genome for R. norvegicus and has been adopted by the Genome Reference Consortium.
