YRI Trio Dataset

Added By fnordquist

The YRI Trio Dataset provides complete genome sequence data for three Yoruba individuals from Ibadan, Nigeria, which represent the first human genomes sequenced using Illumina’s next generation Sequence-by-Synthesis technology. For each genome, the dataset contains >30x average depth of paired 35-base reads.

This data set can be used for the following applications:

  • The development of alignment algorithms
  • The development of de novo assembly algorithms
  • The development of algorithms that define genetic regions of interest, sequence motifs, structural variants, copy number variations, and site-specific polymorphisms
  • To test the viability of annotation engines that start with raw sequence data
