Optical mapping is a technique for capturing fluorescent signal patterns of long DNAmolecules (in the range of 0.1 Mbp to 1 Mbp). Recently, it has been complementing the widely-used short-read sequencing technology by assisting with scaffolding and detecting large and complex structural variations.
