I am wondering what is the difference between this two reference package in R ? hg38 and GRCh38 should be same sequence assembly, right ? So what the point of creating this two reference package to access raw sequence.

Maybe the naming convention for the chromosomes?

UCSC usually prefix the chromosome with chr, NCBI doesn't.

From the examples in the manuals:

It is the same question as "the difference between UCSC and NCBI genomes". Why don't you load them and compare?

There are actually many different versions of hg38/GRCh38. This post by lh3 describes the human reference genome landscape very nicely: http://lh3.github.io/2017/11/13/which-human-reference-genome-to-use

Specific discrepancies:

  • Inclusion of ALT contigs.
  • Padding ALT contigs with long “N”s.
  • Inclusion of multi-placed sequences.
  • Not using the rCRS mitochondrial sequence.
  • Converting semi-ambiguous IUB codes to “N”.
  • Using accession numbers instead of chromosome names.
  • Not including unplaced and unlocalized contigs.
