BAC contigs with individual clones that have end sequence, or with markers embedded in them, can be used to aid the positioning and orientation of sequences within the sequence assembly. A total of 1520 ESTs was screened on the BAC pools and 802 were unambiguously assigned to BAC clones.

The CHORI 240 library was used within the international consortium to create the minimum tiling path used for shotgun sequencing and alignment of the bovine sequences with the FPC map and hence aid the ordering of sequence scaffolds. Inclusion of CHORI 240 clones within the INRA FPC map allows the alignment of both FPC maps and the INRA map with the minimum tiling path of clones which has contributed to the merging of BAC contigs and sequence scaffolds

BAC physical resource are not for commercial exploitation, but for the creation of pre-competitive resources for the Bovine Genomics research community. The data has been published (see below) and raw data has been made available to the International Bovine Genome Sequencing Project to aid the assembly of the sequence.

Furthermore, a Web interface is available to the scientific community to access the data of the project that have been integrated in the global data obtained by INRA with the BAC library:
