Eukaryotic genome sequencing and hybrid assembly approaches
De novo genome sequencing and assembly is the most challenging science of genomics field. Large and complex genomes present unique challenges such as polyploidy and high levels of heterozygosity. PacBio offers the long reads with high accuracy necessary to overcome these challenges. PacBio Sequel II sequencing coupled with Optical Mapping, Illumina and HiC data, can build a high-quality genome assembly of the genome of your interest. In this webinar, we shall be discussing different approaches to sequence the eukaryotic genomes, hybrid assembly, Trio Binning and genome annotation.
