Genome Structure

Detection of Structurally Complex Variation

Improvement and application of approaches for the detection, haplotype phasing and cataloging of complex forms of genomic variation, including structural variants, tandem repeats and mobile element insertions.

Genome Assemblies, Alignment and Reference Genomes

Development and application of methods and tools for genome alignment and assembly. Includes haplotype phasing, de novo assemblies, pangenomes and approaches that incorporate long-read sequencing.
