Genome Assembly

Improve assembly contiguity and automatically correct errors by scaffolding short and long read sequencing contigs with Bionano maps.

Genome Assembly

Generate Error-free Genome Assemblies

Most higher organisms have repetitive genomes and many repeats are inaccessible to sequencing. Long-range scaffolding is needed for a contiguous and accurate de novo assembly. Scaffolding sequence contigs with Bionano maps enables a correct assembly in chromosome arms or full chromosomes. Bionano is the only orthogonal, non-sequencing scaffolding technology, and is thus able to correct chimeric contigs and scaffolding errors caused by Hi-C. With a total output of up to 5 Tbp of data per sample, even the largest genomes can be scaffolded successfully.
