The IT97K-499-3 Genome Assembly v1.2 genome assembly was constructed through assembly reconciliation between 8 assemblies focusing on the strengths of multiple assembly software. The finished assembly is 519.4 Mb arranged in 11 pseudo-molecules and 675 unplaced scaffolds. Nearly half of the assembled sequence is composed of repetitive elements, which are enriched within recombination‐poor pericentromeric regions.

Program Version

Using Single Molecule Real-Time Sequencing (Pacific Biosciences) about six million long reads were generated for a total of 56.8Gbp (91x genome equivalent, assuming a genome size of 620Mb), with a read N50 of about 14.5Kbp. Eight draft assemblies were generated, six of which were produced with CANU v1.3 (using multiple parameter settings), one with Falcon v0.7.3 and one Abruijn v0.4. A custom assembly reconciliation algorithm merged the eight assemblies into one final stitched assembly, which was then polished via the PacBio Quiver pipeline in SMRT Portal. Two Bionano Genomics optical maps were used to assemble contigs into scaffolds. Finally, eleven pseudomolecules were produced using ALLMAPS by anchoring and orienting scaffolds to ten genetic maps containing a total of over forty-four thousand SNPs.
