Closing gaps in the human genome using sequencing by synthesis
2009 (English)In: Genome Biology, ISSN 1474-760X, Vol. 10, no 6, R60- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The most recent release of the finished human genome contains 260 euchromatic gaps (excluding chromosome Y). Recent work has helped explain a large number of these unresolved regions as 'structural' in nature. Another class of gaps is likely to be refractory to clone-based approaches, and cannot be approached in ways previously described. We present an approach for closing these gaps using 454 sequencing. As a proof of principle, we closed all three remaining non-structural gaps in chromosome 15.
