We are thrilled to announce that the pilot GIAB/NIST Reference Material 8398, Human DNA for Whole-Genome Variant Assessment (Daughter of Utah/European Ancestry) is released! This is genomic DNA from a large batch of the same cell line as NA12878. It is available for sale from the NIST Standard Reference Material website at http://tinyurl.com/giabpilot.
Genome in a Bottle Consortium
The Genome in a Bottle Consortium is a public-private-academic consortium hosted by NIST to develop the technical infrastructure (reference standards, reference methods, and reference data) to enable translation of whole human genome sequencing to clinical practice. The consortium was initiated in a set of meetings in 2011 and 2012, and the consortium now holds biannual public workshops in January at Stanford University and in August at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD. The next workshop will be held on August 27-28, 2015 in Maryland. Registration is free but required and available at https://www-s.nist.gov/CRS/conf_disclosure.cfm?&conf_id=8473.
Below you will find the most recent blog posts, and in the bar to the left you can find links to the Reference Materials and Data we are producing, as well as a link to sign up for our email list on Google Groups.
Thank you to all of you who helped make our January 2015 workshop a success. A summary of this workshop and steering committee meeting is now available at: https://docs.google.com/document/d/19J6YDg1MH1iD-8Q8mmV9L7wHOfuyUC3aogctZ2Nh87U/edit?usp=sharing as well as below:
We would like to inform you that, as part of the Platinum Genomes project, Illumina now offers a carefully curated set of phased variant calls for NA12877 and NA12878.
Thank you for the great workshop last week. As we discussed at the workshop, several datasets for the GIAB PGP Trios are now on the FTP site:
