This Week in Nature

In Nature Genetics this week, researchers from the University of Oxford and GlaxoSmithKline present a population reference graph based on multiple reference genome sequences and catalogs of genetic variation that can improve the accuracy of genome inference. Reconstructing the genomes of new samples as paths through the graph, meanwhile, allows for recombination between different haplotypes and additional variants.
