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

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

HAVANA Group
Identification and interpretation of gene-linked problems via the manual annotation of the human, mouse and zebrafish genomes.
- Jonathan M. Mudge
