Accurate sequence assembly is challenging, especially for larger genomes–plants, animals and humans.
Now you don’t have to choose–compromise with draft genomes, containing a high number of sequence gaps and missing data–or spend months or years to complete expensive downstream steps. Genome-Builder enables faster, more complete assembly for large genome de novo sequencing projects.
A New Paradigm for Reference Genome Assembly
- Joins scaffolds to close gaps–more complete view for comparative genomics studies
- Defines order and orientation for more than 90% of sequence scaffolds–more confidence in accuracy
- Completes assembly in 2 weeks–faster projects and publications
How Genome-Builder works–4 steps
Genome-Builder completes assembly for genomes up to 3Gb in size in about 10% of the time required for current methods–like creating physical maps from BAC libraries. And assembly of all the sequencing data is creating an increasingly larger analysis bottleneck. Genome-Builder accurately positions sequence scaffolds and joins the gaps to decrease the number of scaffolds to 2-3 per chromosome arm.
You can get more accurate data from genome comparisons with a more complete reference–and now Genome-Builder makes it faster and lower in cost. Contact OpGen’s MapIt Services group to discuss your project. You provide the sequence data and DNA, then the MapIt group takes the project from there.
