T2T Consortium presented first complete human genome assembly on T2T/HPRC Open Science Days! Polished version of the assembly can be found on github. This is exciting breakthrough for all bioinformatics community!
We are proud that members of our laboratory take part in this important initiative, especially, Alla Mikheenko and Alexey Gurevich, who developed TandemTools in collaboration with UCSD. TandemTools were used to evaluate the quality of assemblies in the most difficult repetitive regions (such as centromeres).
The fourth international conference “Bioinformatics: from Algorithms to Applications” (BiATA2020) moved online this year and was accompanied by a 2-day workshop on metagenomic data analysis. All pre-recorded talks are available online and can be found on BiATA2020 website.
We thank all speakers for presenting their great work and looking forward to the next year!
