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 …

The NIH BD2K center for big data in translational genomics

Abstract The world’s genomics data will never be stored in a single repository – rather, it will be distributed among many sites in many countries. No one site will have enough data to explain genotype to phenotype relationships in rare diseases; therefore, sites must share …

A Million Cancer Genome Warehouse

Technology advances will soon enable us to sequence a person’s genome for less than $1,000, which will lead to an exponential increase in the number of sequenced genomes. The potential of this advance is blunted unless this information is associated with patient clinical data, collected …
