    • Assemblathon 2: evaluating de novo methods of genome assembly in three vertebrate species. 

      Alexandrov, A; Baranay, P; Bechner, M; Birol, I; Boisvert, S; Bradnam, KR; Chapman, JA; ... (91 authors) (Gigascience, 2013-07-22)
      BACKGROUND: The process of generating raw genome sequence data continues to become cheaper, faster, and more accurate. However, assembly of such data into high-quality, finished genome sequences remains challenging. Many ...
    • High-coverage sequencing and annotated assemblies of the budgerigar genome. 

      Aboukhalil, R; Bukovnik, L; Fedrigo, Olivier; Ganapathy, G; Howard, JT; Jarvis, Erich David; Knight, JR; ... (24 authors) (Gigascience, 2014)
      BACKGROUND: Parrots belong to a group of behaviorally advanced vertebrates and have an advanced ability of vocal learning relative to other vocal-learning birds. They can imitate human speech, synchronize their body movements ...
    • Hybrid error correction and de novo assembly of single-molecule sequencing reads. 

      Ganapathy, G; Howard, JT; Jarvis, Erich David; Koren, Sergey; Martin, J; McCombie, WR; Phillippy, Adam M; ... (11 authors) (Nat Biotechnol, 2012-07-01)
      Single-molecule sequencing instruments can generate multikilobase sequences with the potential to greatly improve genome and transcriptome assembly. However, the error rates of single-molecule reads are high, which has limited ...
