7th GIAB Public Workshop

The Genome in a Bottle Consortium held its 7th open, public workshop at the Li Ka Sheng Center on the Stanford University campus January 28-29, 2016. GIAB is developing reference materials, reference data, and methods to use the materials and data to assess performance of human genome sequencing. At this workshop, we discussed progress in developing high-confidence variant calls of all sizes for NIST whole genome Reference Materials. We also discussed the roadmap for future work of GIAB, including analysis of structural variants and difficult regions of the genome and other potential genomic Reference Materials.
