Current default reference genome: GRCh38.p13
Human reference genomes are preloaded and ready for you to use with any DNA app. We also include many of the historical reference genomes in order to facilitate studies and analysis that require these earlier references.
New builds are added as they become available from the Genome Reference Consortium (GRC).
When you use an app, the reference genome can be autodetected or manually selected. Autodetection provides simplicity while manual selection gives you full control.
