A contiguous and accurate genome assembly is a crucial first step in fully understanding the biology of any organism. A high-quality genome assembly will make any downstream analyses, like gene annotation, synteny, comparative genomics and population genetics far easier and more reliable. This has been shown in plant and animal breeding, conservation and preservation study, and evolutionary study. Dovetail Genomics® is the leading company for high quality genome assemblies. To date, we have completed more than 1000 projects, encompass more than 800 species. Using our two complementary scaffolding methods, Chicago® and Dovetail™ Hi-C, we help to increase the contiguity and accuracy of genome assemblies, enabling true, full-chromosome-length scaffolding.
