  • how many bases are in UCSC hg18?

    Hi, all

    Anyone knows where I can find the total size of UCSC hg18?

    Thanks

    On the hg18 information page at UCSC.

        hi, I just noticed that the total size of hg18 (3.1billion bases) includes gaps. Does anyone know the total size of hg18 excluding gaps?

        Thanks in advance

            Great. Thanks a lot!!

            It is amazing that UCSC has all the statistics. I was trying to search them in UCSC and couldn't find them... I probably should spend more time in studying UCSC..

            One more silly question: do you know the difference between Assembled Size and Sequenced Size?

            I am trying to count the percent of base mapped to the whole genome and am not sure which size I should use..

              I believe assembled size includes the size of known gaps in the genome assembly. The sequenced size does not include the size of these gaps. Using physical mapping of a genome (e.g. BAC library fingerprinting or end sequencing) it may be possible to tell the size of a partially sequenced section of the genome during the assembly process, while the entire sequence may not actually be sequenced yet. Nature published a discussion of Gaps in the Human Genome.

              Since there are regions of the genome that are difficult to sequence and assemble with existing technology (e.g. heterochromatin), the difference between assembled and sequenced genome size is likely to persist...

                I agree with the sequenced and assembled size, and would guess using sequenced size makes sense. Because the gaps are not even checked if you are mapping to a reference..

                  Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
                  by seqadmin




                  The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

                  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...
