Human genome Annotation Release 110
Annotation Release 110 is the first new annotation of human in four years, including all latest curated RefSeqs, and recalculation of models using over 80M long reads and 9B Illumina RNA-seq reads. AR 110 includes annotation of two human assemblies:
- Reference assembly GRCh38.p14 (Genome Reference Consortium Human Build 38 patch release 14)
- Alternate assembly T2T-CHM13v2.0 (Telomere-to-Telomere assembly of the CHM13 cell line)
The annotation products are available in the sequence databases and on the FTP site.
