Chromosome-level de novo assembly of the pig-tailed macaque genome using linked-read sequencing and HiC proximity scaffolding

Chromosome-level de novo assembly of the pig-tailed macaque genome using linked-read sequencing and HiC proximity scaffolding

Old world monkey species share over 93% genome homology with humans and develop many disease phenotypes similar to those of humans, making them highly valuable animal models for the study of numerous human diseases. However, the quality of genome assembly and annotation for old world monkeys including macaque species lags behind the human genome effort. To close this gap and enhance functional genomics approaches, we employed a combination of de novo linked-read assembly and scaffolding using pr...
