hg19 vs hg38 in two pictures

Reading Time: 1 minutes

I took these two screenshots for work recently. Shows our evolving understanding of the complexity of the human genome at the population-scale, as reflected in the changes in the reference genome between hg19 and hg38.

hg19 / GRCh37: 2009
hg38 / GRCh38: 2013

hg19-ls

(ignore the temp folder, not part of hg19)

hg38-ls

Note: I make no claims as to actual accuracy or completeness of these two directory listings, I haven’t taken a close look at them in a while. But they’re interesting from a big-picture perspective.

Note to self: continue uploading interesting pictures to imgur album, http://imgur.com/a/PKYyX. (reduce bandwidth consumption on orangenarwhals)
