KOREF is the national standard reference genome initiated by KOBIC (Korean Bioinformation Center) and the National Reference Standard Center of Korea.


The aim is to provide personal reference genomes for Korean and Asian populations to complement GRCh versions.


It is a part of the Korean Genome Project (KGP) and also PGP (Personal Genome Project) with George

The KOREF genome has been publicly available since 2014. The KOREF research paper was published in September 2016 at BioRxiv (http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2016/09/06/070805).
