Systematic tissue annotations of genomics samples by modeling unstructured metadata | Nature Communications (www.nature.com)

There are currently >1.3 million human –omics samples that are publicly available. This valuable resource remains acutely underused because discovering particular samples from this ever-growing data collection remains a significant challenge

We propose a natural-language-processing-based machine learning approach (NLP-ML) to infer tissue and cell-type annotations for genomics samples based only on their free-text metadata.

A Deep-learning based RNA-seq Germline Variant Caller | bioRxiv (www.biorxiv.org)

Here, we extend DeepVariant, a deep-learning based variant caller, to learn and account for the unique challenges presented by RNA-seq data. Our DeepVariant RNA-seq model produces highly accurate variant calls from RNA-sequencing data, and outperforms existing approaches such as Platypus and GATK. We examine factors that influence accuracy, how our model addresses RNA editing events, and how additional thresholding can be used to facilitate our models’ use in a production pipeline.

GitHub - marbl/HG002: A complete diploid human genome (github.com)

In collaboration with the Human Pangenome Reference Consortium and the Genome in a Bottle Consortium we have sequenced and assembled the HG002 aka GM24385 aka huAA53E0 cell line. The ultimate goal of this effort is to create a reference assembly for the HG002 reference material that is perfectly accurate.

GitHub - koesterlab/datavzrd: A tool to create visual HTML reports from collections of CSV/TSV tables (github.com)

A tool to create visual and interactive HTML reports from collections of CSV/TSV tables. Reports include automatically generated vega-lite histograms per column. Plots can be fully customized by users via a config file. These also allow the user to add linkouts to other websites or link between multiple tables. An example report can be viewed online with the corresponding config file.

GitHub - agshumate/Liftoff: An accurate GFF3/GTF lift over pipeline (github.com)

Liftoff is a tool that accurately maps annotations in GFF or GTF between assemblies of the same, or closely-related species. Unlike current coordinate lift-over tools which require a pre-generated “chain” file as input, Liftoff is a standalone tool that takes two genome assemblies and a reference annotation as input and outputs an annotation of the target genome. Liftoff uses Minimap2
