Results can be further processed by other tools of the QIAGEN CLC Genomics Workbench, QIAGEN CLC Genomics Server and relevant plugins. For example, the initial contigs obtained by assembling error-prone, long reads may be further refined using tools delivered by the QIAGEN CLC Genome Finishing Module.
Long Read Support is a plugin for QIAGEN CLC Genomics Workbench. The functionality is also available for QIAGEN CLC Genomics Server using the Long Read Support Server plugin. Learn more about de novo assembly using long reads and short read polishing in this tutorial.
