[…] 2500 sequencer. all raw reads (∼2.6 billion) are deposited in the ncbi short-read archive (sra) under accession numbers srp075442 (bioproject: prjna315816)., contig assembly was performed using sparseassembler v. 2012-06-15 (), and scaffolding was performed on contigs >200 bp in size using sspace v. 3.0 (). finally, short (<15 kbp) scaffolds were removed, as these usually contain […]

[…] independently for plagiarism detection in schleimer et al. []. for example, msp [] compresses k-mers by hashing them to their 4-mer minimizer to efficiently construct a de bruijn graph for assembly. sparseassembler [] represents the de bruijn graph using only every g-th k-mer in the sequence (and has also been implemented using minimizers). kraken [] uses minimizers to speed up database queries […]

[…] et al., ). this assembly included illumina pe raw reads and raw pacbio reads. the first step within the analysis involved two rounds of illumina read error correction and subsequent assembly with sparseassembler [beta version; ye et al. ()]. the coverage threshold for both an error and for a correct sparse k‐mer candidate in the correction process was set to 5. in the first round, the k‐mer […]

[…] in the raw reads were corrected with the sga tool () and duplicates were removed with the fastq-mcf tool (). based on the cleaned illumina reads we estimated the genome size with the bgi method ()., sparseassembler v.1beta () was applied (nodecoveth = 1, edgecovth = 1, k = 21, g = 15, pathcovth = 100) to build contigs based on illumina data and the dbg2olc tool () was used (kmercovth = 2, […]

[…] edges, which normally result in tips, loops or bubbles in the assembly graph, undesirable in the graph for a few reasons, including very high memory requirements. the compact structure of sparseassembler from the cited work was built in less than 2 hours for the human chromosome 14 with the peak memory use of 3 gb. the memory requirement for the whole human genome was below 30 gb.

[…] of modern assemblers for a variety of datasets. we compare the prevalent memory-efficient techniques against a typical traditional approach (i.e., velvet []). we compare the following programs: sparseassembler [], gossamer [], minia [] and sga []. all of them are open-source and representative of the recent assembly trends, namely: the efficient construction of large assembly graphs […]
