  • Is the geneom GRCh37/hg19 from a single person?

    Sorry to ask such novice questions.
    Is the GRCh37/hg19 genome the genome of a single individual, or the composite of multiple people?

    What is the difference between GRCh37/hg19 and GRCh36/hg18? Are they from two different people? If they are, where can I get an electronic copy of the differences between the two individuals?

    Thanks in advance.

    No, they are mainly from around 6 BAC libraries (six people; well around 6). Over half from an African-American. You can find the location and library information of each BAC used in the assembly from NCBI/UCSC.

      hg19 or hg18 are different built.depend on what method, what kind of kit and what bioinformatics method you have applied to have a sequence data from one person, you will have his/her sequence data in hg19 or hg18.
      That means one person can have both hg19 or hg18.
      If you have hg18 you can convert it into hg19 or vice versa.

        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...
