We report on the quality of a whole-genome assembly of Drosophila melanogaster and the nature of the computer algorithms that accomplished it. [...] Key Result As such, this initial reconstruction of the Drosophila sequence should be of substantial value to the scientific community.Expand
The genome sequence of Drosophila melanogaster.
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence of nearly all of the approximately 120-megabase euchromatic portion of the Drosophila genome is determined using a whole-genome shotgun sequencing strategy supported by extensive clone-based sequence and a high-quality bacterial artificial chromosome physical map. Expand
Y Chromosome and Other Heterochromatic Sequences of the Drosophila Melanogaster Genome: How Far can we go?
TLDR
Methods are being expanded to make best use of all available clues to determine which unmapped contigs are associated with genes, including use of EST libraries, and, in the case of the Y chromosome, testing of male specific genes and reduced shotgun depth of relevant contigs. Expand
Assembly of the working draft of the human genome with GigAssembler.
TLDR
This work describes the algorithm used by GigAssembler, which produced the first publicly available assembly of the human genome, a working draft containing roughly 2.7 billion base pairs and covering an estimated 88% of the genome that has been used for several recent studies of the genomes. Expand
Whole-genome sequence assembly for mammalian genomes: Arachne 2.
TLDR
Algorithmic adaptations to the whole-genome assembly program Arachne are described, allowing for assembly of mammalian-size genomes, and also improving the assembly of smaller genomes. Expand
The Drosophila melanogaster genome.
TLDR
The current state of the Drosophila melanogaster genome sequence and its structural annotation is reviewed and some promising approaches that are being taken to achieve an initial functional annotation are summarized. Expand
A BAC-based physical map of the major autosomes of Drosophila melanogaster.
TLDR
A bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC)-based physical map of chromosomes 2 and 3 of Drosophila melanogaster, which constitute 81% of the genome, is constructed to produce a map spanning the euchromatin. Expand
A brief history of Drosophila's contributions to genome research.
The sequence of the Drosophila melanogaster genome presented in this issue of Science is the latest milestone in nine decades of research on this organism. Genetic and physical mapping, whole-genomeExpand
Initial de novo Assemblies of the D. melanogaster genome using long-read PacBio sequencing
TLDR
The level of completeness in the de novo assemblies presented here is unprecedented in a metazoan genome. Expand
The Release 6 reference sequence of the Drosophila melanogaster genome.
TLDR
An improved reference sequence of the single-copy and middle-repetitive regions of the genome is reported, produced using cytogenetic mapping to mitotic and polytene chromosomes, clone-based finishing and BAC fingerprint verification, ordering of scaffolds by alignment to cDNA sequences, incorporation of other map and sequence data, and validation by whole-genome optical restriction mapping. Expand
Comparative genome assembly
TLDR
A novel algorithm for comparative genome assembly that can accurately assemble a typical bacterial genome in less than four minutes on a standard desktop computer is described. Expand

Human whole-genome shotgun sequencing.
TLDR
This article outlines an alternative approach to sequencing the human and other large genomes, which it is argued is less costly and more informative than the clone-by-clone approach. Expand
The complete genome sequence of Escherichia coli K-12.
TLDR
The 4,639,221-base pair sequence of Escherichia coli K-12 is presented and reveals ubiquitous as well as narrowly distributed gene families; many families of similar genes within E. coli are also evident. Expand

TLDR
It is argued here that the whole-genome shotgun proposed by Weber and Myers satisfies neither the high probability of success nor the decreased cost of any such approach. Expand
The accuracy of DNA sequences: estimating sequence quality.
TLDR
A likelihood-based procedure for the estimation of the sequencing error rates, which utilizes an iterative EM algorithm, is described and prior knowledge of the error rates is easily incorporated into the estimation procedure. Expand
Shotgun Sequencing of the Human Genome
TLDR
The scientific rationale for the proposal and the business plan of the company are described, which aims to sequence the human genome four years faster and at lower cost than the government-backed Human Genome Project. Expand
A new strategy for genome sequencing
TLDR
This work has shown that there is a simpler strategy in which any number of laboratories can cooperate and the assumption that each region to be sequenced must first be mapped is wrong. Expand

TLDR
A new criterion for triggering the extension of word hits, combined with a new heuristic for generating gapped alignments, yields a gapped BLAST program that runs at approximately three times the speed of the original. Expand
