PacBio de novo assemblies are created using PacBio SMRTbell libraries created in accordance with the manufacturers recommendation and sequenced on the Sequel II System.
Chicago™ Libraries use a combination of in vitro chromatin fixation, digestion and crosslink reversal to create a library type unique to Dovetail Genomics. This library type has been shown to improve ordering, orientation and contiguity even in highly accurate assemblies.
Dovetail™ Hi-C Libraries use a single restriction enzyme (DpnII) for chromatin digestion prior to proximity ligation. This library uses proven Hi-C chemistry well accepted in the genome assembly and chromatin conformation research fields.
Dovetail™ Omni-C™ Technology incorporates a sequence-independent endonuclease approach to chromatin fragmentation in the proximity ligation protocol.
The HiRise™ Scaffolding Pipeline uses the de novo assembly as an input. Multiple iterations are completed layering the use of the library sequencing data to provide a contiguous high-quality assembly.
When available, TAD analysis uses the data collected from the assembly to provide a view into chromatin 3-D architecture, including topologically associated domains (TADs).
