Case Study: PacBio and Dovetail – For cashew genome, combining technologies yields chromosome-scale assembly

Scientists in Brazil paired PacBio long-read sequencing with Dovetail Genomics chromatin proximity ligation to generate a highly contiguous genome assembly for the cashew tree. With this resource, they are on their way to improving breeding programs to protect the plant from disease and boost yield.
