This assembly represents the fourth version of the Medicago truncatula A17 genome. It consists entirely of short read data from a mixture of sequencing technologies including Illumina, 454 and Sanger. The scaffolds were ordered based on an optical map, genetic map and BAC/fosmid-end sequences.
Assembly Details
Workflow/Pipeline Name
JCVI Pipeline 2014
Algorithm
AllPaths v. R40324
Program Version
R40324
This assembly includes short read data from a mixture of sequencing technologies including Illumina, 454 and Sanger including 97.8-fold coverage of short insert paired-end libraries, 54.2-fold coverage of long insert mate pair libraries. This data was assembled using ALLPATHS-LG (version R41245) with default settings. Full methodology is available in Tang et al. (BMC Genomics; 15: 312; 2014).
