  • 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.

    Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
    by seqadmin


    In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...

    Best Practices for Single-Cell Sequencing Analysis
    by seqadmin



    While isolating and preparing single cells for sequencing was historically the bottleneck, recent technological advancements have shifted the challenge to data analysis. This highlights the rapidly evolving nature of single-cell sequencing. The inherent complexity of single-cell analysis has intensified with the surge in data volume and the incorporation of diverse and more complex datasets. This article explores the challenges in analysis, examines common pitfalls, offers...
