BACKGROUND New short-read sequencing technologies produce enormous volumes of 25-30 base paired-end reads. The resulting reads have vastly different characteristics than produced by Sanger sequencing, and require different approaches than the previous generation of sequence assemblers. In this paper, we present a short-read de novo assembler particularly(More)
New short-read sequencing technologies produce large volumes of 25-30 base paired-end reads. In this paper, we present a sequen-cing protocol and de novo assembler program (SHORTY) targeted towards such microread data. Our protocol augments short-paired reads using a trivially small number of Sanger reads (only one to three reads per bacterial genome).(More)
