HMIWGS/HMASM - Illumina WGS Reads and Assemblies
In the first phase of WGS sequencing, 764 samples were sequenced, comprising 16 body sites. Of these, 749 samples underwent assembly. Reads for all 764 samples, and 749 assemblies are provided here.
Reads and assemblies were subjected to QC assessment, including identification of outliers by mean contig & ORF density, human hits, rRNA hits and size. 690 samples passed this QC and were included in downstream wgs analyses.
This dataset includes over 35 billion human contaminant-screened reads in FASTQ format, which are 2.3 TB in size, compressed. Reads from each individual sample were assembled using SOAP, generating 48.3 million scaffolds with a total compressed size of 13 GB.
