  1. Overcoming remaining challenges for completing Phase 1 VGP Erich D.

    Jarvis, Chair G10K The Rockefeller University Howard Hughes Medical Institute G10K-VGP Workshop, PAG meeting San Diego, CA January 16th, 2019
  2. The goal of the Vertebrate Genomes Project (VGP) is to

    generate at least one high-quality, error-free, near gapless, chromosome-level, haplotype phased, and annotated reference genome assembly for all extant vertebrate species, and to utilize those genomes to address fundamental questions in biology, disease, and conservation. Goal of the VGP
  3. Vertebrate Genomes Project (VGP) https://vertebrategenomesproject.org Phase 3: Original G10K milestone

    Phase 2: EBP family milestone Phase 1: Proof of principle & learning Phase 4: B10K, Bat1K, EPB milestones Redefining species concept Follow on twitter (Chair): @erichjarvis, @Genome10K, @GenomeArk

  5. Issues that need resolution 1. Need to collecting remaining species

    specimens – 85 of 260 species 2. Add and define a metric for haplotype phasing 3. Non-trio approach for complete phasing of haplotypes, at all steps 4. Missing genomic sequence from VGP assemblies 5. Assembly and identification of mitochondrial genomes 6. Assembly and identification of sex chromosomes 7. Defining “assembled chromosome” and “chromosomal-level assembly” 8. Scaling up production of genome assemblies to 6 per week 9. Improve multilayered and reference free alignments 10. Planning publications with VGP Phase 1 genomes

  13. Scaling up to 6 genomes/week • Agarose plug method timing

    is a bottle neck • PacBio Sequel II and 8M SMRT cell will enable this goal • Need to separate production from R&D • Need dedicated effort to continuously obtain samples • Need more rapid production of RNASeq/IsoSeq • Need VGP pipeline on DNANexus tmoro be functional • Need more systematic upload of data to annotation archives
