De Novo Genome Assembly

Comprehensive service typically 4-26 weeks:

  1. QC of data.
  2. OPTIONAL: Removal of contamination reads e.g. from host.
  3. Assembly:
    1. Assembly with different assembler tools.
    2. Comparison of assembly metrics. Selection of best assembly.
    3. OPTIONAL: Contamination checking and removal of contaminating contigs. 
  4. Scaffolding to produce a more contiguous assembly.
  5. Gene Calling and annotation.
  6. OPTIONAL: Iterative biology driven, in depth annotation of specific loci of interest.
  7. Publication quality visualisation and reporting.
  8. Input to publication, including revisions and resubmissions.
