A Landmark Paper Describing Assembly of the Complete Human Genome

The Telomere to Telomere (T2T) consortium, including Megan Dennis from the Genome Center, has published a pre-print of the assembly of the complete human genome. This pre-print publishes the sequence of the remaining 8% of the genome and is the first truly complete 3.055 billion base pair (bp) sequence of a human genome. This is the largest improvement to the human reference genome since its initial release in 2001.
