Chromosomal-level assembly of the Asian seabass genome using long sequence reads and multi-layered scaffolding
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
We report here the ~670 Mb genome assembly of the Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer), a tropical marine teleost. We used long-read sequencing augmented by transcriptomics, optical and genetic mapping along with shared ...
Genome sequence of the tsetse fly (glossina morsitans): vector of African trypanosomiasis
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2014)
Tsetse flies are the sole vectors of human African trypanosomiasis throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Both sexes of adult tsetse feed exclusively on blood and contribute to disease transmission. Notable differences between ...
Whole-genome sequencing for an enhanced understanding of genetic variation among South Africans
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
The Southern African Human Genome Programme is a national initiative that aspires to unlock the unique genetic character of southern African populations for a better understanding of human genetic diversity. In this pilot ...
