The Williams 82 version 4 assembly (Wm82v4) builds on the widely-used assembly version 2, as well as an incremental version 3 that involved incorporation of BAC sequence to fill contig gaps in 2016. The Wm82v2 assembly was primarily Sanger-based, and new gap-filling in v3 and v4 utilized PacBio-based BAC assemblies targeted to gap regions. The Wm82v4 assembly closed 3,626 gaps and added 5,138,978 bp of sequence relative to Wm82v2, increasing the contig N50 from 233.1 kbp to 419.3 kbp.

This release was constructed starting with the version 3 release. First, an optical map and synteny with the two other Glycine max assemblies (Lee and Soja) were used to correct the order and orientation of the original scaffolds. Next a total of 16.5x raw PACBIO read coverage on targeted clone regions was used to patch gaps and ~50x Illumina reads were used to polish the new sequence. For full details of the new assembly, see the original source for the genome.
