  • VCF representation of phase

    At a given locus in the reference genome, VCF records phased and non-phased alleles by separating numeric references to the alleles with either | (phased) or / (unphased). For example, "0/1" might be found in an unphased diploid sample.

    My question has to do with the case where you have polyploidy with 3 or more alleles. With VCF's notation, it is possible to represent a combination of phased and unphased alleles at a single locus, e.g., "0|1/1". But is this actually possible in practice? From what I understand of software that computes phasing, this shouldn't happen, so "0|1|1" or "0/1/1" might be reported at a given locus, but not "0|1/1" or "0/1|1".

    Have I got this right?

    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...
