[…] the genome size from dna paired-end libraries. the estimated genome size is 805 mb, with the main peak observed at a coverage depth of ∼×39 (fig. 2). initial assemblies were performed using the celera assembler v. 8.3 (celera assembler, rrid:scr_010750) with trimmed paired-end reads [11]. for the celera assembler, paired-end read data were converted into frg file format using fastqtoca, […]

[…] rs ii, and sanger sequencing (gnc bio: daejeon, republic of korea) [16]. sanger sequencing was used for the construction of a physical map of the genome., a hybrid assembly was performed using the celera assembler (version 8.2) [21] and a fosmid paired-end sequencing map was used to confirm the assembly. the final assembly was revised using proovread (version 2.12) [22]. an initial annotation […]

[…] was generated at the institute for genome sciences, genome resource center, on an illumina hiseq2000 instrument using paired-end libraries with 300-bp inserts. the draft genomes were assembled using celera assembler (14). the final assemblies were filtered to contain contigs of ≥500 bp. the average coverage of the genomes sequenced in this study was >200×. information regarding the size […]

[…] csf, cerebrospinal fluid., the genomic dnas were sequenced using illumina miseq (100-bp paired-end reads) technology (illumina, san diego, ca). the genome sequences were assembled de novo using celera assembler7 (6). the resulting coverage ranged from 47× to 83×, with an average of 59×. genome annotation was performed using glimmer3 (7) and ratt (8)., the results of genome sequencing […]

[…] reads. first, a paired-end library was prepared from 4 μg of dna and subsequently sequenced, generating 590,886 reads in 296,624,772 bp of sequencing data. the data was initially assembled using a celera assembler 7.0 and 87 contigs ranging from 112 to 529,941 bp were obtained. 40 scaffolds with genome size of 7.30 mb ranging from 1906 to 1,134,406 were obtained. the genomes of ht66, 30–84 […]
