Tell us how a high-quality Dovetail de novo assembly will help you achieve your research goals and you could win a $10,000 grant award to offset total project costs

Since 2014, the Dovetail brand has been synonymous with unparalleled genome assembly quality. We have delivered over 1,800 assemblies to hundreds of researchers globally. Our unique combination of PacBio HiFi long-reads and Dovetail® Omni-C® scaffolding produces best-in-class haplotype-resolved assemblies of diploid genomes.

Traditional assembly workflows produce a pseudo-haploid assembly. This is a mosaic of the two haplotypes and does not represent a true diploid genome. Dovetail assemblies are haplotype-resolved: you will get 2 assemblies, one for each haplotype. Leverage the full power of de novo assembly with Dovetail® Premium True Diploid assemblies!

We have now expanded our Dovetail® Premium service to include polyploid genomes. While polyploid genomes represent some of the most challenging of genomes to assemble, our proprietary bioinformatics workflow produces highly accurate and contiguous polyploid assemblies across many diverse taxa.
