[…] contigs of a genome of interest with related assembled genomes has proven to be a useful approach to improve the assembly of fragmented genomes, especially bacterial genomes []. among such methods, fpsac [] was introduced to improve ancient genome assemblies within a phylogenetic context. it was applied to adna contigs from the y. pestis strain responsible for the medieval london bubonic plague […]

[…] parameter combinations, varying segment lengths and window lengths from 15 to 85 at intervals of 10. we assessed our results by comparing against fpmag. fpmag is a method derived from fpsac [], a tool for scaffolding ancestral bacterial contigs. while fpsac and fpmag are not intended for use on mammalian genomes, they use the maximum matching routine described in [], […]

[…] sequences are avalaible in additional file ., using megablast [] we aligned the 2134 ancient yersinia pestis contigs obtained by bos et al.[] (avalaible at http://paleogenomics.irmacs.sfu.ca/fpsac/, last accessed 19 june 2015) against the obtained ancestral genome, including chromosome and plasmids., we examine 2179 hits of length >102.5bp from 2087 contigs (see additional file […]
