We have a lot to thank the 1000 Genomes project for in the genomics community. By the collaborate efforts of many researchers and organizations, the project produced not only the first catalog of rare human variation but in the process standardized many things we take for granted, such as the VCF and BAM file formats. The variant frequencies of the… Read more »
Yesterday’s webcast, Genomic Prediction Methods in SVS, gave attendees a chance to see how the principles of genomic prediction are applied within SVS, predicting phenotypes for both plant and animal species. You can find a recording of the webcast on our site here should you be interested in checking it out or sharing with a colleague! The webcast garnered a… Read more »
