With the rise of long-read sequencers and long-range technologies, delivering high-quality plant genome assemblies is no longer reserved to large consortia. Not only sequencing techniques, but also computer algorithms have reached a point where the reconstruction of assemblies at the chromosome scale is now feasible at the laboratory scale. Current technologies, in particular long-range technologies, are numerous, and selecting the most promising one for the genome of interest is crucial to obtain optimal results. Read More
