Whole-Genome Sequencing: Getting Started With Large Genomes
Until recently, large eukaryotic genomes have proved challenging to sequence and assemble with traditional sequencing methods. Full characterization of plant and animal genomes via high-throughput sequencing is revolutionizing many areas of research. In human and veterinary health, sequencing enables unprecedented insights into disease, whilst investigating genetic variation in plants allows for the maintenance of diversity and selection of desirable traits, such as high yield and resistance to pathogens. With nanopore sequencing, large genomes can be sequenced in fewer, longer fragments, allowing easier genome assembly and resolution of even the most challenging regions.
