The Genome Reference Consortium

Putting sequences into a chromosome context.

The original model for representing the genome assemblies was to use a single, preferred tiling path to produce a single consensus representation of the genome. Subsequent analysis has shown that for most mammalian genomes a single tiling path is insufficient to represent a genome in regions with complex allelic diversity. The GRC is now working to create assemblies that better represent this diversity and provide more robust substrates for genome analysis.

Slides from presentations at the 2014 GRC Assembly Workshop at Genome Informatics are now available: http://www.slideshare.net/GenomeRef.

The GRC announces the release of the GRCz10 assembly. Click here to download the assembly files. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us.

Transitioning to GRCh38 or GRCz10? Try the NCBI Remapping Service, which uses the same assembly-assembly alignments used by the GRC.
