In a paper published in BMC Genomics, a team led by scientists from Baylor College of Medicine’s Human Genome Sequencing Center present Parliament, a structural variant (SV) calling pipeline that brings together multiple data types and SV detection methods to improve the characterization of these larger variants.
The sequence and analysis of the gibbon genome was published in the journal Nature and led by scientists at Oregon Health & Science University, the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center and the Washington University School of Medicine’s Genome Institute.

Researchers in The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Network have made a number of new findings about the biology and development of a rare form of kidney cancer.
Dr. Caleb Davis and Dr. Min Wang of the BCM-HGSC are co-first authors on the paper, The Somatic Genomic Landscape of Chromophobe Renal Cell Carcinoma, which appeared August 21, 2014 in Cancer Cell.
The development and clinical implementation of the Whole Exome Sequencing test derives from a joint effort by Baylor's Human Genome Sequencing Center and Baylor Miraca Genetics Laboratories to establish a clinical laboratory dedicated to state-of-the-art next generation sequencing.
