[…] of 300 bp for illumina and 20 kb for pacbio were prepared using a nextera xt-library preparation kit and p6-p4 chemistry, respectively. all sequencing reads from both platforms were assembled using dbg2olc software to produce scaffolds (). the genome sequencing resulted in a total genome size of 79.24 mb with 55.9% gc content, 826× sequencing coverage, 495 scaffolds, n50 scaffold length […]

[…] and p6 polymerase., in order to get the best assembly results, we tried short oligonucleotide analysis package de novo assembly tool (soapdenovo) [], de bruijn graph to overlap-layout-consensus (dbg2olc) (https://sourceforge.net/projects/dbg2olc/), falcon (https://github.com/pacificbiosciences/falcon), and smartdenovo (https://github.com/ruanjue/smartdenovo). the assembly result […]

[…] subsequently, platanus (ver. 1.2.4) was executed using the preprocessed paired-end reads to assemble contigs (, step 1), which were then used as anchors to connect the pacbio long reads on dbg2olc (commit id: 7f1712ae76b015b1f4efee81a5d4e1305701197a) (, step 2). contigs from the platanus assembly that were longer than 1 kb were used for the input of the dbg2olc hybrid assembly. note […]

[…] parameters “-m 500 -k 43 -s 5 -d 0.3 -u 0.15 -c 3,” resulting in two contig assemblies. the platanus-generated contigs, together with pacbio reads, were used to generate a third contig assembly by dbg2olc with default parameters []. the three different contig assemblies were merged together by minimus2 amos (v. 3.1.0) using default parameters []. to eliminate possible errors of the merged […]
