Lunch and Learn: Dovetail Genomics – Building the Best Genomes on Earth
February 12 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Join us on February 12th for a lunch and learn with ICBR Bioinformatics and Dovetail Genomics in CGRC 133.
A contiguous and accurate genome assembly is a crucial first step in fully understanding the biology of any organism. A high-quality genome assembly will make any downstream analyses, like gene annotation, synteny, comparative genomics and population genetics far easier and more reliable.
Dovetail Genomics is the leading service provider for high quality genome assemblies. To date, we have completed more than 800 projects, spanning many classes of organisms from plants to reptiles, amphibians, fish, mammals, birds, insects and more.
Using our two complementary scaffolding methods, Chicago and Dovetail Hi-C, we are dramatically increasing the contiguity and accuracy of genome assemblies, enabling true, full-chromosome-length scaffolding.
This talk will provide an update on our most current technologies, including our new Dovetail Hi-C Kit that is enabling researchers to build their own Hi-C libraries. We will profile several customer projects and discuss how improvements in their assemblies led to better science and new discoveries.
