The VC2010 genome assembly has just been published in Genome Research as an open-access article. This assembly is largely derived from a completely isogenic VC2010-derived strain, PD1074, that is now available from the CGC.
In related news, Junho Lee and his lab have simultaneously published an open-access article on their substantially improved genome assembly for Hawaiian C. elegans (CB4856).
