If your organism doesn’t have a reference genome, or your draft assembly needs improvement, we can make it happen—in just weeks.

From agriculture and ecology research to conservation and evolutionary biology, obtaining a highly contiguous, extremely accurate genome is key to answering your important questions. Which genes are involved in plant growth? What do the genomes of related species reveal about their evolution?

How can genomics improve your breeding program? Why is a certain plant vulnerable to a disease?

We can help you answer these and other questions about plants and animals with Dovetail Genomics technologies and services that simplify and streamline the creation of reference genomes.

The path to a high-quality genome assembly can start wherever is best for you.

We can begin by creating a draft assembly with the ideal sequencing technology for your organism, or by using a draft assembly you’ve already created.

You can also bring the technology of the Dovetail™ Hi-C service to your own lab.

Prefer a more hands-on approach to your research? We have you covered. Our new Dovetail™ Hi-C Library Preparation Kits are run in your lab, on your schedule, with your sequencers.
