Assisted assembly: how to improve a de novo genome assembly by using related species
2009 (English)In: Genome Biology, ISSN 1465-6906, E-ISSN 1465-6914, Vol. 10, no 8, R88- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We describe a new assembly algorithm, where a genome assembly with low sequence coverage, either throughout the genome or locally, due to cloning bias, is considerably improved through an assisting process via a related genome. We show that the information provided by aligning the whole-genome shotgun reads of the target against a reference genome can be used to substantially improve the quality of the resulting assembly.
