Mar 5, 2018Human: HG-965
AC100756.5's correct clone name is RP11-262J5. The correct clone name has been updated in the GRC sequence curation tool as well as the Chromosome 15 TPF.
Mar 1, 2018Human: HG-1260
This region has been retiled with CHORI-17 clones AC270147.1, AC245159.2, and AC245438.2, extending over 100kb to either side of the AC108724.4-AC133123.3 join in question, and the new pathway seems to support the old pathway. There is also CHM1 BioNano support across this join.
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.
GRCg6 (GCA_000002315.4), the latest chicken reference genome assembly is released.
