Long-read sequence assembly of the gorilla genome

Improving on the gorilla genome Access to complete, high-quality genomes of nonhuman primates will also help us understand human biology. Gordon et al. used long-read sequencing technology to improve genome data on our close relative the gorilla. Sequencing from a single individual decreased assembly fragmentation …

Representing and decomposing genomic structural variants as balanced integer flows on sequence graphs

Abstract Background The study of genomic variation has provided key insights into the functional role of mutations. Predominantly, studies have focused on single nucleotide variants (SNV), which are relatively easy to detect and can be described with rich mathematical models. However, it has been observed …
