[…] for the assembly of a long scaffold have also been developed, e.g., bac/fosmid paired end sequencing, the long-read sequencing (lrseq) [] approach, contiguity-preserving transposase sequencing (fragscaff) [], and various assembly algorithms [, ]. recently, chromatin interactions, such as high-throughput/resolution chromosome conformation capture, have been used to assemble ultra-long […]

[…] and then all of the illumina reads were used to correct the genome assembly by pilon_v1.18 (pilon, rrid:scr_014731) for two rounds []. after that, the 10x linked-reads were used to link scaffolds by fragscaff_140 324.1 []. first, in order to solve the issue of heterozygosity, in our assembly process we chose 19-kmer to draw k-mer distribution histogram and classified all the kmers […]

[…] than expected by chance. by looking at the patterns of co-occurrence of reads from the same pool mapped onto the ends of scaffolds, we can identify and orient linked scaffolds. we used the program fragscaff to achieve this scaffolding, which increased the scaffold n50 of our assembly to 7.0 mb (), representing a 12-fold improvement., in parallel, we obtained an assembled sequence motif […]
