GRC and Collaborators

The GRC is a collaborative effort and only works with input from the larger scientific community. We strive to work closely with external groups to gather all relevant data.

Eichler Lab

Fosmid end analysis to identify problem regions and sequence to fill gaps in human.

  • Evan Eichler
  • Jeff Kidd

Schwartz Lab

Optical map information to identify problems and confirm joins in human and mouse.

  • David Schwartz
  • Steve Goldstein

Caceres Lab

Experimental follow-up on regions of the genome that seem to carry an inversion. These may be polymorphisms or errors.

  • Mario Caceres

McCarroll Lab:

Admixture mapping to localize unlocalized and unplaced assembly sequences.

  • Giulio Genovese

Lansdorp Lab

Strand-seq mapping to correct inversions and localize unlocalized and unplaced assembly sequences. Strand-seq analysis for zebrafish.

  • Peter Lansdorp
  • Mark Hills

Stemple Lab

SATMAP (high density meiotic map) and GAPMAP (SATMAP extension) in zebrafish.

  • Derek Stemple


Identification and interpretation of gene-linked problems via the manual annotation of the human, mouse and zebrafish genomes.

  • Jonathan M. Mudge
