This Week in Nature

In this week's Nature, a team led by researchers from Seoul National University present the genome of a Korean individual, providing a population-specific reference genome for a group traditionally underrepresented in sequencing studies. By combining newly available sequencing and assembly technologies such as single-molecule, real-time sequencing, the investigators were able to generate a high-resolution reference genome with few gaps.
