Direct determination of diploid genome sequences

filed under: science

Our paper describing Supernova, the 10x whole-genome de novo assembler, is now available on-line (for free, thankfully) at Genome Research. Supernova is unique in that it focuses on the generation of diploid assemblies and is entirely turn-key. With proper input data, we generate assemblies that are complete, contiguous, accurate, and phased. As part of the validation of this paper, we assembled seven genomes that are now available in GenBank. Feel free to email or say hi on Twitter if you have questions.
