SMRT Leiden: The impact of polishing on Darwin Tree of Life chromosome-level lepidopteran genome assemblies built with PacBio HiFi and Illumina Hi-C reads

In this SMRT Leiden 2020 Online Virtual Event presentation, Marcela Uliano da Silva of Wellcome Sanger Institute shares her work using CCS data combined with HiC reads to assemble chromosome-level genomes for Lepidoptera. This was done as part of the The Darwin Tree of Life Project which is assembling high-quality genomes for all eukaryotic species in Britain and Ireland. Find data:
