We have sequenced and assembled the Xyrichtys novacula genome, combining ONT and Illumina data. The resulting genome assembly has a 34.3 Mb scaffold N50 and comprises a total span of 775 Mb of sequence. The estimated Merqury QV is 43. BUSCO against the actinopterygii_odb10 database retrieves a 98.6% of complete genes.
If you have a genome you’d like to sequence, we’re happy to help. We work with you from the beginning to devise an appropriate sequencing and assembly strategy. The CNAG offers high-throughput Illumina sequencing, long-read sequencing with Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT), and Hi-C scaffolding. According to the size and complexity of the genome and available sample quality and quantity, we work to optimize the sequencing strategy.
