[…] database []. the repbase sequences originated from the salmoniformes family, and excluded simple repeats (downloaded january 13, 2017). repeatmodeler v1.0.8 [] was also used together with the allpaths-lg initial assembly in a de novo approach, which identified 1,124 repetitive sequences., the repetitive sequences were then aligned to the chinook genome with blastn v2.2.28+ []. a wordsize […]

[…] from each of the different sequencing libraries. roughly 73x coverage from two paired-end libraries and three mate-pair libraries was used to generate the initial genome assembly with the allpaths-lg program. the contig n50 for the initial assembly was 14.6 kb, and the scaffold n50 was 1.086 mb., after adding the pacbio data using the pbjelly software, the contig n50 increased […]
