Short read lengths and repetitive genomic regions often result in fragmented de novo assemblies. To improve results and convert contigs into high quality assemblies a complex process referred to as genome finishing is needed. QIAGEN CLC Genome Finishing Module is part of QIAGEN CLC Genomics Workbench Premium, designed to accelerate and simplify genome finishing, and make this process accessible to life scientist without deep understanding of bioinformatics.
Genome finishing is usually work-intensive and time-consuming, and often involves specialized teams. QIAGEN CLC Genome Finishing Module puts non-experts on the fast track towards finished genome assemblies.
Leverage in one step a combination of finishing methods. Scaffold contigs using paired reads or long read (like PacBio) data, and carry out automatic alignment of contigs to each other or to a closely related genome.
Assemble reference genomes faster.
PacBio’s single molecule real-time sequencing platform generates data fast. Is data analysis now your bottleneck? We bring you the fastest and simplest way to error-correct and assemble PacBio long reads into high quality assemblies with QIAGEN CLC Genome Finishing Module.› See the benchmarks
