Data Release: ~54x Long-Read Coverage for PacBio-only De Novo Human Genome Assembly
We are pleased to make publicly available a new shotgun sequence dataset of long PacBio® reads from a human DNA sample. We previously released sequence data using Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) Sequencing of ~10x coverage of this sample, sufficient for reference-based detection of structural variation. Today we expand on that release with additional data that increases the total sequencing coverage to ~54x.  This long-read data has enabled the generation of the first de novo human genome assembly from PacBio-only sequence reads."
