Genome Assembly - Bionano Genomics
Genome Assembly. Scaffold Bionano genome mapping data with sequencing data to dramatically improve assembly contiguity, reduce sequencing coverage needed, and automatically correct errors in sequencing-based assemblies.

Genome assembly | EMBL-EBI Train online
This series of talks is by Matthias Haimel who was working in Ensembl Genomes at the time, now at the University of Cambridge. These talks are intended to show how NGS data can be used for genome assembly. There are three talks, each with an exercise associated with them. It is intended that you view the talks and do the exercises in sequence.

A typical genome assembly workflow is displayed, these steps make use of various bioinformatics tools and algorithm to generate final genome assembly and annotation. There are many genome sequencing techniques available, these include – Short read next-generation sequencing: Illumina and Ion Torrent
What is Genome Assembly? (with pictures) - wisegeek.com
Genome assembly refers to the process of taking many small pieces of genetic sequence and merging them together into a coherent whole that represents an organism's entire genome. This is a major focus of the bioinformatics field, and a variety of genome projects exist for this purpose. Genome ...
Sequence assembly - Wikipedia
EST assemblers. Expressed sequence tag or EST assembly was an early strategy, dating from the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s, to assemble individual genes rather than whole genomes. The problem differs from genome assembly in several ways. The input sequences for EST assembly are fragments of the transcribed mRNA of a cell and represent only a subset of the whole genome.
NCBI Genome Assembly Model
The assembly model. When genome sequencing initially started it was thought that the genome assembly could be represented by a single 'Golden Path'. That is, a single set of overlapping sequences could be selected to produce a non-redundant chromosome sequence (with gaps) that would fully represent the sequence at all loci.
Genome assembly bioinformatics tools - omicX - OMICtools
Genome assembly is an obligatory step in de novo DNA sequencing, where long and short reads are put together to reconstitute a complete genome sequence. In de novo genome assembly, no reference genome is used, which renders the task more complex and time-consuming than mapping. De novo genome assembly software tools detect overlaps between reads, assemble overlaps into contigs, and then ...

Genome assembly primer | CBCB
The ultimate goal of any sequencing project is to determine every single base-pair of the original set of chromosomes. As we described above, rarely is an assembly program able to reconstruct a single piece of DNA per chromosome, leading to gaps in the reconstruction of the genome.
