Q&A: Meta-Assembly Mixes Sequencing Platforms, Algorithms for De Novo Assembly with Short Reads | GenomeWeb

Researchers from the University of California, San Diego, University of Massachusetts, and the J. Craig Venter Institute have taken a "meta" approach to assembling short-read sequence data.

In a paper published last month in PLoS ONE, the team demonstrated that the so-called Meta-Assembly approach could be used to assemble a complete bacterial genome de novo without Sanger reads.
