The method quantifies structural variations in an allele-specific manner, providing an integrative way to study complex SVs and copy number alterations. 

The supercomputer was used to identify genomic variants in some 300 deeply sequenced human samples for use in a planned bead-array-based genotyping chip.

New genome assemblies for three cultivated or wild pineapple plants, together with re-sequenced hybrids, enabled an analysis of pineapple biology and history.

The funds will support efforts to develop novel data compression strategies for handling various kinds of genomic data.
