This document describes the GEP protocol for improving the hybrid assemblies produced by the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center (BCM-HGSC). This document is designed to work in concert with the “GEP Hybrid Assembly Walkthrough” that illustrates how students can apply this protocol to specific issues that they might encounter during the sequence improvement process.
This PowerPoint presentation provides a general overview of the hybrid assemblies produced by the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center as part of the Drosophila modENCODE project. This presentation provides a brief introduction to the source of the raw sequence data and the protocol used by BCM-HGSC to construct the draft D. biarmipes genome assemblies.
This document illustrates how students can apply the sequence improvement protocol described in the “Sequence Improvement Protocol for GEP Hybrid Assembly Projects” document to specific problems in a D. biarmipes sequence improvement project. Specifically, the walkthrough describes techniques for correcting consensus errors and for closing gaps.
