GRCh38.p1 has arrived!

The first patch release for the GRCh38 reference assembly is now available. The GRCh38.p1 release includes 16 scaffolds: 13 FIX patches and 3 NOVEL patches. The FIX patch scaffolds correct existing assembly sequences, while the NOVEL patch scaffolds provide new alternate sequence representations. You can download the GRCh38.p1 assembly, including the alignments of the patches to GRCh38, from the GenBank FTP site: ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genomes/all/GCA_000001405.16_GRCh38.p1/.

Stay tuned for upcoming blog posts on individual patches!
