Structural variants identified by Oxford Nanopore PromethION sequencing of the human genome
In this paper, published in pre-print this week, de Coster et al. examine the calling of structural variants in the Yoruban NA19240 genome, presenting high confidence and high sensitivity call sets along with description of their workflow for identification, annotation and characterisation of tens of thousands of structural variants.
Authors Wouter de Coster and Arne de Roeck presented this work, along with additional projects on repeat expansion characterisation, in a webinar this week for Front Line Genomics. You can watch their talk through the link below.
