[…] and evaluated with several tools in smrt analysis (v2.2.0 and v2.3.0) and in-house pipelines (, online). briefly, the raw reads in fastq format were extracted from h5 format by bash5tool in the pbh5tools packages. the suggested parameters (minreadscore = 0.75, minsrl = 50, minrl = 50) were adopted to filter and trim the raw reads. the circular consensus module in consensustools […]

[…] canu #14 assembly using the 44x raw pacbio reads. first, each smrt cell was separately aligned to the unpolished canu assembly using pbalign (version with the ‘--forquiver’ flag. next, cmph5tools.py (version 0.8.0) was used to merge and sort (with the ‘--deep’ flag) the pbalign.h5 output files for each smrt cell. finally, quiver (genomicconsensus version 0.9.2 and consensuscore […]
