A survey of mapping algorithms in the long-reads era | Genome Biology | Full Text (genomebiology.biomedcentral.com)

It has been over a decade since the first publication of a method dedicated entirely to mapping long-reads. The distinctive characteristics of long reads resulted in methods moving from the seed-and-extend framework used for short reads to a seed-and-chain framework due to the seed abundance in each read. The main novelties are based on alternative seed constructs or chaining formulations. Dozens of tools now exist, whose heuristics have evolved considerably. We provide an overview of the methods used in long-read mappers. Since they are driven by implementation-specific parameters, we develop an original visualization tool to understand the parameter setting

The T2T-CHM13 reference genome has more accurate sequences for immunoglobulin genes than GRCh38 | bioRxiv (www.biorxiv.org)

These studies reveal that the sequences of the immunoglobulin genes within T2T-CHM13 are more accurate than GRCh38. Thus T2T-CHM13 is the reference genome of choice for accurate mapping and identification of the human immunoglobulin genes.
