  • Parochlus steinenii is a winged midge from King George Island. It is cold-tolerant and endures the harsh Antarctic winter. Previously, we reported the genome of this midge, but the genome assembly with short reads had limited contig contiguity, which reduced the completeness of the genome assembly and the annotated gene sets. Recently, assembly contiguity has been increased using nanopore technology. A number of methods for enhancing the low base quality of the assembly have been reported… CONTINUE READING
