The human genome is finally completely sequenced

20 years after the first draft of the human genome was completed, and less than a year after the first complete chromosome (X) was published, today the Telomere-to-Telomere (T2T) Consortium released a preprint detailing the first fully complete human nuclear genome sequence. All 3,054,815,472 bases, without any gaps.


Two sister publications preprinted at the same time use this new genome sequence to study segmental duplications and epigenetics, respectively.
