Genome in a Bottle Consortium Releases Benchmark Data for Challenging Medically Relevant Genes
The public-private consortium added benchmarking data for 273 difficult-to-analyze but medically important genes previously omitted in its reference.
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.
African Pan-Genome Analysis Reveals Significant Non-Reference Genome Sequences
With sequence data for 910 African individuals, researchers found more than 296 million bases of sequence not represented in the human reference genome GRCh38.
GenomeWeb takes an in-depth look at efforts to make genetic variation an integral part of the canonical human reference assembly.
Report Suggests Big Payoff from Human Genome Project
The $3.8 billion investment in the Human Genome Project was foundational for $796 billion in output, and a trove of new technologies, according to an industry-commissioned report from Battelle.
