AGBT is less than a week away in Hollywood Florida - and I've been letting everything else get ahead of writing anything here. The JP Morgan Conference at the beginning of this month didn't have major fireworks from the sequencing vendors, but did have some news.Read more » go to blog

Some years ago I read an article – I forget where – describing how our general knowledge often becomes frozen in time. Asked to name the tallest building in the world you confidently proclaim “the Sears Tower!”, because for most of your childhood that was the case – never mind that the record was surpassed … Continue reading Has your knowledge stopped updating? go to blog

The UC Davis Young Scholars Program is a summer residential program that provides high school students the opportunity to work one-on-one with research faculty in state-of-the-art labs for six weeks. One of the faculty mentors recently that the program recently showcased on its Facebook page is Chemistry Professor Ting Guo, who has been a faculty […] go to blog
Long-read sequencing enables the phasing of variants and reads, i.e., separating those into two parental haplotypes. Without trio information, you will not be able to say which variant is inherited from which parent, but you will know which variants were inherited together. And this matters, e.g., for compound heterozygous variants and cis-regulatory variation. Phasing can… Continue reading Announcing Phasius for visualization of phase blocks go to blog

One of the most ridiculous and inadvertently hilarious genres in nonfiction is the “five-year plan.” I became acquainted with this literary form in my first grade in Communist Romania. At the end of the year, I stood in front of an audience of teachers, parents, and party bosses and read aloud the following immortal sentence: “We, the proletariat, pledge to fulfill the five-year plan in four years.” The local communist bosses seemed pleased with my reading of their text. It … go to blog

Of course, having a newer version of the nanopore base caller will have some impact. The accuracy obviously constantly improves, and in long-running projects like ours, we now have samples with Guppy4, Guppy 5, and Guppy 6 base caller versions.I reasoned that it would probably be a confounder, but we mainly look at structural variation.… Continue reading Beware of confounding basecaller versions go to blog
Rare genetic diseases were one of the first beneficiaries of the high-throughput sequencing revolution. Gene discovery in rare disease was once a laborious endeavor that required gene mapping approaches — linkage analysis in dominant pedigrees, or homozygosity mapping in consanguineous families — to narrow the search space, followed by targeted sequencing of coding regions of […] The post A Decade of Gene Discovery in Rare Disease appeared first on KidsGenomics. go to blog

Periodically in my work or during writing this blog I come across computational problems that have the aspects of making, at least in my mind, very good teaching problems. Some of the characteristics are that the basic problem is relatively simple to explain, the skills required are reusable on other problems, the concepts are germane to other problems and that the posed problem can be expanded in steps to something much richer. Such problems might even be the nucleus of … go to blog
PacBio has been rolling out announcements around the ASHG meeting and now delivers a huge one: the next generation SMRT instrument “Revio” will roll out next spring and it’s a big step up in throughput. With Revio’s 15X boost in per-run throughput over Sequel IIe, PacBio is touting this as 30X HIFi genomes for under $1K sequencing consumables per genome. Read more » go to blog
I am releasing Cramino today, my first Rust experience. Cramino is a faster replacement for NanoStat, and extracts features from cram and bam files that are useful for quality assessment of long read sequencing data, including read lengths and read identities. The default output looks like below (left), and is generated in 12 minutes for… Continue reading Introducing Cramino: a *fast* QC tool go to blog
