• Sequencing the unknown made easy: Metaplatanus improves metagenome assembly

    14 days ago - By ScienceDaily

    Metagenome sequencing of 'tricky' gene pools has been ridden with issues during assembly of sequenced DNA fragments, which can now be addressed by a tool developed by scientists. This hybrid metagenome assembler tool, called MetaPlatanus, utilizes long-range sequence links and species-specific features, to deliver high-quality DNA sequences.
