Over the past decade, the Genome Reference Consortium (GRC) has held free workshops at annual meetings of ‘American Society for Human Genetics (ASHG)’. The GRC also regularly participates in workshops hosted by the McDonnell Genome Institute at Washington University, a GRC member, at annual meetings of ‘Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT)’. The GRC uses these workshops to provide users with an understanding of features and characteristics unique to the reference assembly, highlight the most recent updates and new features, describes methodology used in reference management, and show how to access assembly data and use GRC-developed analysis tools. At the workshops, the GRC encourages the user community to provide feedback about reference assembly issues and resources needed for genomic analysis.
