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 an add-on to QIAGEN CLC Genomics Workbench, 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
