De Novo Genome and Transcriptome Assembly of the Canadian Beaver (Castor canadensis)

February 2017

Si Lok, Tara A. Paton, Zhuozhi Wang, Gaganjot Kaur, et al.

Researchers in Toronto report a high-quality draft assembly of the 2.7 Gb beaver genome using SMRT Sequencing. They include an analysis of gene content, such as enrichment for genes associated with dentition and enamel deposition. The team used BluePippin to remove fragments smaller than 15 Kb before sequencing with PacBio.
