More mutants and new information on the confidence level of insertions are available at since 11/22/2016

We have now released ~16,000 additional mutants. At this time, ~54,000 mutants are available, containing ~80,000 insertions, covering 80% of the Chlamydomonas genome! In addition, we have categorized the insertion junctions that we mapped into three confidence levels and determined the probability of correct mapping for each level. The probability (95%, 73%, or 58%) is now included in the “feature” … Continued
