Component FO834915.2 has been removed from the chromosome 5 TPF. The component FO834915.2 along with unlocalised scaffold NA761 and WGS contigs CABZ01040716.1 and CABZ01051145.1 have been relocated to chromsome 8, based on genetic marker and clone library mate pair information.

TPF has been adjusted based on marker information, placing contig ctg10626 in front of contig ctg6239.
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 the GRC workshop at Genome Informatics 2016 and ASHG 2016 are now on SlideShare.
