Bioinformatics Methods for Graph-Based Pangenomics

July 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT

Thursday, July 1, 2021 2-3 PM https://ucsc.zoom.us/j/93631652670 Meeting ID: 93631652670 Passcode: 350271 Description In most sequencing experiments, sequencing reads are mapped to a reference genome assembly in order to identify the genomic elements that the reads originated from. The mapping process becomes less accurate when the sample's genome differs from the reference genome. This introduces a pervasive reference bias in which genomics analyses are systematically less accurate for non-reference alleles. In the field of pangenomics, it has been proposed that…
