Date: Dec 7, 2015. Susan Strickler: Long read assembly and annotation strategies for complex plant genomes

Susan Strickler is a Research Associate in the Mueller lab at the Boyce Thompson Institute on Cornell University campus.

Plant genome assembly can be notoriously difficult due to such challenges as heterozygosity, polyploidy, and repeats.  The long read technology provided by PacBio sequencing can help to overcome some of these obstacles to result in more complete and accurate assembly and annotation.  In this talk, I will discuss de novo genome assembly tools and methods for processing PacBio genome and transcriptome data to generate high quality plant genomes and gene models.
