Dovetail’s Proximity Ligation Technologies

Chicago and Dovetail Hi-C are the fast and affordable way to span distances up to the size of whole chromosomes.

Chicago and Dovetail Hi-C scaffolding technologies combine short read NGS data with long range proximity ligation data generated within chromatin.  Chicago starts with purified DNA in vitro and boosts contiguity while also improving draft assembly accuracy. Dovetail Hi-C starts with intact chromosomes in situ, thereby enabling true full chromosome-length scaffolding.


The result?  A highly contiguous and highly accurate de novo genome assembly!
