[…] a sequence, and each possible path gives a possible reconstruction of the genome. genomic repeats introduce nodes that must be traversed multiple times, thereby tangling the assembly graph., agora [] presents a method for guiding genome assembly to resolve repeats using optical maps by selecting the correct path among exponentially many paths consistent with the set of reads. agora works […]
