Assembly and RNA‐free annotation of highly heterozygous genomes: The case of the thick‐billed murre (Uria lomvia)

January 2018

Anna Tigano, Timothy Sackton, and Vicki Friesen

Researchers at Queen’s University and Harvard teamed up for an effort to assemble the highly heterozygous genome of an arctic colonial seabird. The found that the platanus assembler outperformed other methods, producing an assembly with an impressive 15.8 Mb N50. DNA integrity was evaluated using the Pippin Pulse.
