Pan-Genome Graphs Help Identify SNPs, INDELs and Structural Variants with Higher Accuracy

Improved methods for analyzing next-generation sequencing (NGS) data is mission critical given inherent flaws with the current human genome linear reference. Building on years of experience developing pan-genome references to eliminate reference bias, Seven Bridges GRAF is now broadly available to researchers on all Seven Bridges platforms.  The next-generation Seven …

Pan-Genome Analysis Takes Center Stage

The concept of a pan-genome reference is straightforward: a reference structure that represents all the known genetic variation for a particular population or species. The representation of the human reference genome as a linear haploid DNA sequence poses limitations when trying to incorporate the known genetic diversity of human populations. …

Reference bias: Challenges and solutions

Ahead of the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo in Boston this week, we take a look at the role of reference genomes in ensuring accurate genomic analysis. In standard next-generation sequencing analyses, DNA is fragmented and sequenced. The sequenced reads are then aligned to a reference genome for the species. …

Festival of Genomics: Reflecting on graph genomes

Yesterday at Festival of Genomics, London, Seven Bridges CEO Deniz Kural joined a panel discussing implementations of graph genomes, alongside Erik Garrison from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and Andy Yates from EMBL-EBI. Great panel talking about #graph #genomes at #GenomicsFest @erikgarrison @denizkural Andrew Yates @FLGenomics pic.twitter.com/4Cxy2CslvT — Adrian Alexa …
