10x Genomics Chromium De Novo Assembly Solution and Supernova Assembler

10x Genomics has launched the Chromium De Novo Assembly solution and the Supernova Assembler. The new solution provides reagents, instrumentation, and software tor workflow that goes from sample to diploid assembly in less than two weeks. Researchers can start with approximately 1 ng of high molecular weight DNA to generate libraries for sequencing on high-throughput Illumina HiSeq X Ten instruments. The assembler uses "Linked-Reads" data output from the assemblies with less than 10 Mb scaffold size and long-range accuracy.
