• Control or eradication of HCV will likely require the broad application of antiviral drugs and the development of an effective vaccine, which could be facilitated by a precise molecular identification of transmitted/founder (T/F) viral genomes and their progeny. (notifylibrary.org)

  • By the time the 1000 Genomes Project has dumped its last petabyte of data on the web there will be relatively few polymorphisms (variants with a frequency of greater than 1%) left to discover, at least in the European, East Asian and West African populations. (scienceblogs.com)
  • 1000 Genomes Project Consortium, 2010), twice smaller than the rate we use. (blogspot.com)
  • The mutation rate was an issue in another recent paper , which used a similar 2.36x10-8 rate as the one here, and not the much lower rate from a couple of 1000 Genomes family trios. (blogspot.com)
  • As I said in that post (and more recently ), we clearly have a lot to learn about autosomal mutation rates yet, and hopefully we will both get a better estimate of the rate from more trios of the 1000 Genomes project, as well as establish possible population variation in that rate.

  • First, we focus on the technical challenges of making measurements that start from a single molecule of DNA, and then explore how some of these recent methodological advancements have enabled the discovery of unexpected new biology. (nih.gov)

  • Both genomes were sequenced using next-generation sequencing technology from Illumina, which generates sequence information in the form of very short (35-50 base pair) reads. (scienceblogs.com)
  • Although each read is extremely short and relatively error-prone compared to reads from old-fashioned sequencing methods, the sheer number of reads generated by the Illumina technology make whole-genome sequencing feasible: both studies stitched together in excess of 3 billion of these reads to assemble their genomes. (scienceblogs.com)
  • That means that each base in the genome was covered, on average, by over 30 independent reads (as opposed to an average of around 7 reads for the Watson and Venter genomes) - more than enough to compensate for the increased error rate of the Illumina platform. (scienceblogs.com)
  • These papers are both important technical achievements, the first of many publications that will emerge over the next few years taking advantage of these short-read technologies to characterise entire human genomes (Watson's genome was also sequenced using next-generation technology, but on a platform that generated much longer reads than the Illumina system at a correspondingly lower throughput). (scienceblogs.com)
  • Stitching together a genome sequence with such short reads is a substantial challenge, especially in regions where the sequence is repetitive - and indeed the technology can only cover 90% of the reference genome compared to 99.9% for a genome recently sequenced to similar depth with Illumina . (scienceblogs.com)
  • Despite the challenges of mapping their short, error-prone reads, the team generated enough reads to cover the mappable 90% of the genome an average of 28 times per base, and that level of coverage (comparable to the depth seen in recent Illumina-based papers) meant that the errors in their raw reads could be largely cancelled out by the addition of more reads in the same place.

  • By the early 1970s, "genome size" was in common usage with its present definition, probably as a result of its inclusion in Susumu Ohno's influential book Evolution by Gene Duplication, published in 1970. (wikipedia.org)
