[…] assembled paired-end reads from the non-partitioned libraries from both of the individuals. briefly, paired-end sequences from the same individual as the partitioned library were processed using konnector (version 2.0) [], which performs local de bruijn graph assembly to generate pseudo-long reads representing complete dna fragments. the resulting pseudo-long reads and remaining sequence […]

[…] instructions. the initial assembly was 2.394 gbp with a genomic scaffold n50 length of 21.34 mbp (). improvements to the initial assembly were made by incorporating local assemblies using konnector (version 2.0) [], which attempts to fill the intervening gap between two paired sequences from a library fragment to provide longer sequences useful for scaffolding. partitioned […]

[…] of ram and dual intel xeon x-5550 2.67 ghz cpus running red hat enterprise linux 5 as part of westgrid, compute canada., pet read pairs were merged sequentially using the abyss-mergepairs tool and konnector (version 1.9.0). bloom filters were constructed from all reads using the abyss-bloom utility, and every tenth value of k between 75 and 245 bp, inclusive. reads from potentially mixed […]

[…] although can be applied in small prokaryote genomes as well. the main algorithm consists in the selection of nucleotides in the assembly that flank the gap-regions, followed by a local assembly by konnector () using data from paired-end reads. konnector, which takes the paired-end reads and generates pseudo-long reads by applying a combination of bloom filter and de bruijn graph, […]

[…] the white spruce chloroplast sequence, we determined that our scaffold was missing around 40 bp of sequence at the 5' end, and 2 kb of sequence at the 3' end. to recover these missing bases, we used konnector [], which fills in nucleotides between paired-end reads given a bloom filter representation of a de bruijn graph. since we expected the chloroplast genome to be circular, we supplied the 5’ […]
