  • GRCh37: how to use lates patches

    I would like to know how to assemble human refefence genome GRCh37 from individual chromosome files and latest patches.

    This is ensembl's ftp site which lists >300 fasta files.
    ftp://ftp.ensembl.org/pub/release-67...o_sapiens/dna/

    For primary assembly, one might simply concatenate chromosome 1, 2, ..., X, and Y. However, X and Y chromosomes share pseudoautosomal region (PAR) as README points out. I could just leave out Y chromosome since I work on K562 cells, but otherwise what am I supposed to do? There is a big file called toplevel.fa which appears to have PAR sequenes masked, but does it contain all chromosomes and patches? README does not say anything about its content.

    There seem to be two kinds of patches: fixes and novel additions. How are these patches correctly incorporated into the primary assembly? Is there a utility software to handle this? Or are patches treated as separate entities (e.g. as PATCH_xxx instead of being integrated into chromosome proper)?

    Thank you for your very kind help.

    Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
    by seqadmin


    The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

    Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
    by seqadmin




    The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
