[…] then resuspended in h2o. genomic dna was sequenced on an illumina hi-seq in a multiplex run of 48 samples., de novo assembly of the illumina sequence data into contigs was carried out using velvetoptimiser (victorian bioinformatics consortium). the genome of atcc9714 was then optically mapped [51] (see below), establishing the order and relative orientations of all contigs >50┬ákb.
