DNAnexus has the bioinformatics expertise and computational power to provide you with a complete PacBio de novo genome assembly. Simply provide us with the PacBio data files and we'll handle the rest.
De novo assembly in less than 2 weeks
Easily incorporate additional technologies to improve genome assembly (e.g. 10X Genomics, Dovetail BioNano).
Save time, compute and data handling resources
Technical expertise working with complex genomes (e.g. high ploidy, heterozygosity, and/or high repeats
Add additional bioinformatics tools (e.g. structural variant callers)
All data and results reside in our compliant and independently certified platform
Vertebrate Genomes Project
DNAnexus is the supporting platform for the Genome 10K's Vertebrate Genomes Project (VGP), which assembles and analyzes genomes of all vertebrate species to create a digital Genome Ark library and help document species that are on the brink of extinction.
The Wheat Genome
De novo genome assembly is a complex task made more challenging by high levels of genetic diversity, repetitive elements, and duplicated genomic regions. Wheat species are especially challenging because of their hexaploidy and high repeat content, which can generate 5x more data than a human genome and 22x more compute consumed.
