Dovetail Genomics and UC Davis – Together, Building the Best Genomes on Earth
Learn how the UC Davis Genome Center DNA Technologies Core and Bioinformatics Core Facilities are now providing the Dovetail Genomics Hi-C technology with HiRise software.
A contiguous and accurate genome assembly is a crucial first step in fully understanding the biology of any organism. A high-quality genome assembly will make any downstream analyses, like gene annotation, synteny, comparative genomics and population genetics far easier and more reliable.
Dovetail Genomics has assembled and scaffolded more than 1000 genomes over the past five years. We are routinely delivering chromosome-scale assemblies to our customers, built using our Dovetail Hi-C protocol and HiRise scaffolding software. We have now released this protocol as an easy-to-use kit with cloud-based software. The UC Davis Genome Center DNA Technologies Core and Bioinformatics Core Facilities are now a Certified Service Provider for Dovetail Hi-C.
This seminar will provide an overview of the Dovetail scaffolding technologies, and details on the new Hi-C Kit with HiRise software. We will discuss why Dovetail is superior to other scaffolding methods, and how you too can take advantage of this unique technology.
Please register so we can get an accurate headcount for lunch.
