Resolved Issues

Oct 21, 2016

Zebrafish: ZG-5031

ZFOS-1184D10 (FO744880.1) and CH1073-185O16 (FO904837.1) span the gap between these two components and have good alignments to both of them. This issue can now be resolved.

Zebrafish: ZG-4101

Based on marker alignments this region has been changed. A new ticket will be created to deal with the gap.

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.
