Highly contiguous de novo human genome assembly and long-range haplotype phasing using SMRT Sequencing

Author(s): Picton, Steve and Ekholm, Jenny and Ashby, Meredith and Chin, Jason and Hon, Lawrence and Harting, John and Peluso, Paul

The long reads, random error, and unbiased sampling of SMRT Sequencing enables high quality, de novo assembly of the human genome. PacBio long reads are capable of resolving genomic variations at all size scales, including SNPs, insertions, deletions, inversions, translocations, and repeat expansions, all of which are both important in understanding the genetic basis for human disease, and difficult to access via other technologies. In demonstration of this, we report a new high-quality, diploid-aware de novo assembly of Craig Venter’s well-studied genome.
