Abstract / Description of output

Understanding the rate and patterns of genome variation is becoming ever more amenable to whole-genome analysis through advances in DNA sequencing, which may, at least in some circumstances, have supplanted more localized analyses by cellular and genetic approaches. Whole-genome analyses can utilize both short- and long-read sequence technologies. Here we describe how sequence generated by these approaches has been used in trypanosomatids to examine DNA replication dynamics, the accumulation of modified histone H2A due to genome damage, and evaluation of genome variation, focusing on ploidy change.
