Scientists from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University and Okayama University in Japan generated draft genomes and transcriptomes of ribbon worms and horseshoe worms, with major implications for understanding the evolution of these species. For this work, the team used SageELF and BluePippin to perform automated size selection for mate-pair libraries in an Illumina workflow.
