A Nature Briefing Pick
Most Complete Human Genome Yet
An international consortium has sequenced the most complete version of the human genome ever, more than 20 years after researchers published the first draft. Around 200 million more bases now fill gaps — including the protective end-caps of chromosomes, known as telomeres, and central dense knobs called centromeres that help to orchestrate replication.

It “really gives us some insight into regions of the genome that have been invisible”, says genomicist Deanna Church.
