Genome sequence of YH: the first diploid genome sequence of a Han Chinese individual.

Dataset type: Genomic
Data released on July 06, 2011

Genomic data from the YH (Homo sapiens) genome – first diploid genome sequence of a Han Chinese, a representative of the Asian population. The genomic DNA used in this study came from an anonymous male Han Chinese individual who has no known genetic diseases. The YH genome was assembled based on 3.3 billion reads using the Illumina Genome Analyzer. We achieved 117.7G nucleotides data and the genome was sequenced to 36-fold average coverage. By aligning the short reads with SOAP, 102.9G nucleotides were mapped onto the NCBI reference genome and 99.97% of the genome was covered. The raw sequences, alignments, consensus genome, variants and relevant tools are released for public use under a CC0 license.
