Note on the sequence nomenclature

  • The first assembly released was IWGSC WGA v0.4 - available from June 2016. This assembly comprised the whole genome assembly of Chinese Spring Illumina short read data with NRGene's DeNovoMAGICTM corrected for chimera and assigned and ordered along chromosomes using POPSEQ and Hi-C.
  • The new assembly is IWGSC RefSeq v1.0 - released in January 2017. This assembly comprises IWGSC WGA v0.4 integrated with chromosomal resources that include: physical maps, sequenced BACs for 8 chromosomes + 2 chromosome arms, WGPTM sequence tags from BACs, optical maps (7A, 7B, 7DS) and SynOp RIL population and CSxRn (INRA) genetic maps.
