Dovetail Genomics® Company Overview

Dovetail Genomics is the leader in the field of chromatin conformation capture (HiC). Watch this video to learn more about our novel solutions enabling new science in the fields of epigenetics, developmental biology, drug discovery, cancer research, and evolutionary biology.

Intro to HiChIP MNase Technology

The Dovetail® HiChIP MNase combines the benefits of ChIP-seq wiht the long-range information of Hi-C, enabling genome wide mapping of protein-directed topological features. Identify locally bound-sequences and distal interactions up to megabases away, mediate by your protein of interest (e.g. promoter/enhahcer interactions). Learn more!

Intro to Dovetail® Micro-C Technology

The Dovetail® Micro-C Kit enables capture of chromatin topology at a mono-nucleosome resolution. Watch this webinar and discover how you can get the highest resolution achievable with uniform sequence coverage or save on sequencing costs. Enjoy the next evolution to Hi-C for high-resolution mapping of chromatin topological features.

Intro to Dovetail® Omni-C® Technology

The Omni-C Kit supports multiple whole genome sequencing applications:
-Large structural variant detection
-SNP and InDel genotyping
-Perform genome assembly
-Perform haplotype phasing
-Capture chromatin conformation data

Breaking the Hi-C Resolution Barrier

In this webinar, learn how:
– Using MNase delivers the highest resolution in chromatin conformation
– Increased signal-to-noise ratios translates to reduced sequencing burdens
– Micro-C captures features that other Hi-C approaches have difficultly detecting
– Micro-C an be leveraged in protein-direct approaches to chromatin capture assays

Define Chromatin Architecture at the Nucleosome Level

From the creators of the Dovetail® HiChIP and Micro-C assays respetively, Marco Blanchette (VP R&D) and LIsa Munding (Lead Scientist) share the history behind developing these game changing assay kits for epigenetic research. Hear how the kits work, their benefits, and the ways Marco and Lisa see these new technologies impacting genomics research.

Genome Assembly Webinars

Directed Evolution of Genome Assemblies - and Why it is Important

Harris Lewin, Ph.D.
UC Davis

Trace the directed evolution of 28 genome assemblies of the Narwhal, an iconic cetacean known at the “unicorn of the sea”. While understanding the evolution and amazing phenotypes of the Narwhal is the ultimate goal, the evolution of genome assemblies from short-read to long read-based assemblies with Dovetail scaffolding has been an interesting scientific journey in itself. Different sequencing approaches will be discussed in the light of genome assembly evolution, and their importance for understanding genome biology.

Assembling a Reference-Quality Genome for Solemya velum (Bivalvia: Protobranchia)

Vanessa L. González, Ph.D.
Smithsonian Institution

We generated a reference-quality genome Solemya velum (Bivalvia: Protobranchia) to allow us to test hypotheses about mollusc genome evolution and the symbiotic interactions in marine molluscs. 10X Genomics, PacBio Long-reads and Hi-C data was leveraged for molluscan genome assembly. Iterations and combinations of each data type have resulted in a 2.4 GB reference genome with a scaffold N50 of 200 MB and a BUSCO completeness score of 93.7%.

Sequencing & Assembling the Mega-Genomes of Mega-Trees

Steven Salzberg, Ph.D.
Johns Hopkins University

The giant sequoia and the coast redwood are two of the largest living organisms. We’ll discuss our successful genome assembly of a 1360-year-old sequoia that produced the largest scaffold of any genome ever attempted and our near-complete work on the genome of a 1390-year-old coast redwood. Both projects used a combination of short reads and long Oxford Nanopore reads for initial assembly, and Hi-C linked reads from Dovetail Genomics for scaffolding.
