The Telomere-to-Telomere consortium has already generated a gapless assembly of the human X chromosome and aims to complete all chromosomes over the next two years or so.

The Human Genome Reference Program aims to build a human genome reference that better accounts for genetic diversity than the existing reference.

A new analysis pointed to a rise in over-generalized or incorrect bacterial identification by k-mer lowest common ancestor methods as the database has grown.

Investigators reported on efforts to help labs better implement guidelines and measure disease associations, and to create shared languages for variants across different databases.

The report advises that although sequencing the genomes of infants can be appropriate in some specific cases, we shouldn’t implement large-scale programs to test healthy babies.

The automated, whole-genome directional genomic hybridization system can measure de novo random, low-frequency, and complex structural variations.

A ClinGen panel reports that only one gene linked to Brugada syndrome out of 21 tested has enough evidence supporting its inclusion in clinical genetic tests.
