Modernizing Reference Genome Assemblies
I have read the journal's policy and have the following conflicts: Paul Flicek is married to the deputy editor of PLoS Medicine, Melissa Norton. Evan Eichler is on the board of Pacific Biosciences.Expand

Evaluation of GRCh38 and de novo haploid genome assemblies demonstrates the enduring quality of the reference assembly.
The human reference genome assembly plays a central role in nearly all aspects of today's basic and clinical research. GRCh38 is the first coordinate-changing assembly update since 2009; it reflectsExpand

Long-read sequencing and de novo assembly of a Chinese genome
Short-read sequencing has enabled the de novo assembly of several individual human genomes, but with inherent limitations in characterizing repeat elements. Here we sequence a Chinese individual HX1Expand

A New Chicken Genome Assembly Provides Insight into Avian Genome Structure
The importance of the Gallus gallus (chicken) as a model organism and agricultural animal merits a continuation of sequence assembly improvement efforts. We present a new version of the chickenExpand

High-resolution comparative analysis of great ape genomes
A spotlight on great ape genomes Most nonhuman primate genomes generated to date have been “humanized” owing to their many gaps and the reliance on guidance by the reference human genome. To removeExpand

Single haplotype assembly of the human genome from a hydatidiform mole.
A complete reference assembly is essential for accurately interpreting individual genomes and associating variation with phenotypes. While the current human reference genome sequence is of very highExpand

Extending reference assembly models
The human genome reference assembly is crucial for aligning and analyzing sequence data, and for genome annotation, among other roles. However, the models and analysis assumptions that underlie theExpand

The dbGaP data browser: a new tool for browsing dbGaP controlled-access genomic data
The database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) Data Browser (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gap/ddb/) was developed in response to requests from the scientific community for a resource that enable view-only access to summary-level information and individual-level genotype and sequence data associated with phenotypic features maintained in the controlled-access tier of dbGaP.

Telomere-to-telomere assembly of a complete human X chromosome
After two decades of improvements, the current human reference genome (GRCh38) is the most accurate and complete vertebrate genome ever produced. However, no single chromosome has been finished endExpand
