[…] initial assembly of the a. limnaeus genome at a sequencing coverage of 94x. this allpaths-lg assembly produced 141,049 contigs longer than 1000 bp, and within these contigs 650 mbp was assembled. jr-assembler assembled 370,267 contigs (> 500 bp) with an n50 of 1.3 kbp and a total assembled length of 433 mbp. after merging the two assembles with a graph accordance assembly program [], […]

[…] script to remove linkers and pair up the corresponding reads. the slr reads were generated via basespace module (illumina) and used as given., we ran the assembly tools allpaths-lg, masurca, and jr-assembler on our pe reads with mp reads set as jump reads for scaffolding. we found allpaths-lg to be the most favorable as far as number of scaffolds and total genome length are concerned.

[…] heterozygosity, we used a hybrid assembly approach to assemble the genome of race 0 (fig. ). we also compared the performance of different assemblers including velvet (v1.2.09) [], abyss (v3.81) [], jr-assembler (v1.0.3) [], euler-sr (v1.1.2) [], spades (v3.0.0) [], soapdenovo2 (r240) [], celera assembler (v8.0) [] and minimus2 (v 3.1) [] on p. nicotianae race 0. comparison showed […]

[…] velvet (v1.2.10, k = 55) (), abyss (v1.3.4, k = 45) (), spades mainly implemented for single-cell data (v2.5.1, k = 43,55,65) ()—all de bruijn graph based ()—and the seed-and-extend approach based jr-assembler (v1.0.3, default parameters) (). the resulting contigs (>1,000 bp) were merged and clustered for sequence similarities using cd-hit-est (v4.6, -c 0.95) () to reduce redundancy.

[…] information, figure s1; table s1). this process allowed extension of sequence into regions of high divergence, closed large deletions, and built sequence into insertions ( and ). we used the jr-assembler () to create de novo assemblies of the same sequence reads, assessed their quality using the program reapr (), breaking contigs as needed, and aligned the resultant contigs […]
