de novo sequencing

The public-private partnership has published a paper on a list of indels larger than 50 bp that is already being used to develop new methods.

The firm, Universal Sequencing Technology, recently launched a library prep kit to get long-range information from short reads and is working on a long-read sequencing platform.

At ASHG, researchers showed why they're moving away from limited, linear human reference genome representations and towards a more inclusive future.

In Nature this week: circular consensus sequencing method to sequence and assemble a human genome, a new CRISPR platform using the Cpf1 endonuclease, and more.

Jean-Laurent Casanova aims to identify single-gene mutations that compromise the immunity of normally healthy individuals and lead to severe infectious disease.

The team discovered a history of multiple major interspecies admixture events in elephant evolution, altering past beliefs of separate genealogical trees.  


An Australian team used Pacific Biosciences long reads, 10X Genomics linked reads, and Bionano Genomics mapping to assemble a desert dingo genome de novo.

The researchers also found fixed variants in the tortoise genome linked to the immune system, which may help manage the health of the threatened species.

The researchers sequenced bacteria samples sourced from all over the world to reconstruct a phylogenetic tree and learn how it evolved to have multidrug resistance. 

At the conference, the Broad Institute's David Jaffe presented a strategy for sequencing reference genomes from many different horses for an estimated price tag of around $25,000 apiece.
