Pan-genome analyses are becoming increasingly common and important. Possible activities for this working group include: reviewing various representations of pan-genomes (graphs, orthology groups of pan gene sets, structural variations, genetic variations), and their uses; defining core, near-core, dispensable, unique regions/genes; developing API specifications for accessing pan-genomes; submission of genetic variation to EVA and use of biosamples to capture populations.
