Patches and Haplotypes in the Human Genome

submitted by: gspudich

Why are patches included in Ensembl? How is it possible to view a patch alongside the primary sequence? We explore the current human genome (GRCh37) in this video.

Demo: Old genome coordinates to new

submitted by: gspudich
Genome sequences are updated with time. Your data might be on an older version of the genome, for example the human genome assembly NCBI36 (also known as hg18 by UCSC). In 2009, this assembly was updated to GRCh37 (named hg19 by UCSC). You can use the Ensembl archive site to view the older genome: http://may2009.archive.ensembl.org . To convert your coordinates to the newest genome sequence, use the Ensembl assembly converter (demonstrated in this video.)
