Determining the genome sequence of an organism is often the first step towards its molecular characterization. Once a difficult and expensive task, nowadays it is an almost routine practice in many molecular biology labs. In this chapter we discuss in depth the various methods to assemble the short sequences (called reads) obtained from a massive sequencing… CONTINUE READING
