Study Detail

TitleLong-read de novo assembly of the Plasmodium falciparum genome using single molecule real-time sequencing
Study TypeOther
Abstract The application of next generation sequencing to estimate genetic diversity of Plasmodium falciparum, the most lethal malaria parasite, has proved challenging due to the skewed AT-richness (~80.6% (A+T)) of its genome and the lack of technology to assemble highly polymorphic sub-telomeric regions th ..
