[…] genome analyzer ii system. raw illumina reads were first processed by removing low-quality reads, adaptor sequences and possible contaminated reads of bacterial and viral origin. then, the software quake36 was used to correct the reads from each library. the corrected reads were then assembled using soapdenovo (-k 63 -r -d), with the three mate-pair libraries being used to link contigs […]

[…] reads with called bases were stripped of adapters and trimmed using fastx (http://hannonlab.cshl.edu/fastx_toolkit/; appendix s3, supporting information). trimmed reads were error-corrected using quake (kelley et al. 2010) and assembled using soapdenovo v1.05 (li et al. 2010) with a k-mer size of 33 (appendices s4–s5, supporting information). after estimating insert sizes for each library […]
