Sequencing of Australian wild rice genomes reveals ancestral relationships with domesticated rice

Plant Biotechnol J
PMCID: 5425390
PMID: 27889940
DOI: 10.1111/pbi.12674

[…] Assembled PacBio contigs were assigned to chromosome pseudomolecules using Genome Puzzle Master [GPM; Zhang et al. ()]. Rice reference genome sequences were used to guide the process: Oryza sativa ssp. japonica var. Nipponbare genome was used for Taxon A and O. meridionalis was used for Taxon B. […]


Building two indica rice reference genomes with PacBio long read and Illumina paired end sequencing data

[…] larization (minOverlap=500 bp, overlapIdentity=95%) and BAC Id assignments (minCloneTagNumber=5, tagMatchIdentity=100%, tagMatchPercent=80%; besMatchIdentity=98% if no WGP tag(s) is available).In the GPM ‘assemblyRun’ step for building BAC-based sequence contigs, the default parameters for merging two BAC sequences were ‘minOverlapSeqToSeq=1000 bp’ and ‘identitySeqToSeq=99%’, plus the overlaps wer […]
