Global Reference Genomes assembly hubs

This assembly hub contains ten high-quality, population-identified assemblies released by the Reference Genome Improvement project. This population list is not conclusive and represents reference genomes from 10 different human populations. Thank you to Washington University in Saint Louis for consolidating these open source reference genomes.
