The sequence of the mouse genome is a key informational tool for understanding the contents of the human genome and a key experimental tool for biomedical research. Here, we report the results of an international collaboration to produce a high-quality draft sequence of the mouse genome. We also present an initial comparative analysis of the mouse and human(More)
Differentiation of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) provides a unique opportunity to study the regulatory mechanisms that facilitate cellular transitions in a human context. To that end, we performed comprehensive transcriptional and epigenetic profiling of populations derived through directed differentiation of hESCs representing each of the three(More)
Sequencing-based approaches have led to new insights about DNA methylation. While many different techniques for genome-scale mapping of DNA methylation have been employed, throughput has been a key limitation for most. To further facilitate the mapping of DNA methylation, we describe a protocol for gel-free multiplexed reduced representation bisulfite(More)
To improve the utility of existing technologies based on Sanger sequencing, this paper examines the possibility of base-calling two superposed DNA sequences jointly. This approach allows a single electrophoresis experiment to process two sequences, using the same quantity of reagents and machine hours as for a single sequence. A practical heuristic is(More)
Although Illumina shotgun reads cover most genomes almost completely, sequences with extreme base compositions are often underrepresented or missing. Bias can potentially be introduced at any step during the library construction in the lab, on the Illumina instrument, in data processing or at the sequence analysis stage. Here we set out to evaluate sources(More)
