De Novo assembly
Short-read assembly (Illumina)
Sequence assembly of short reads coming from Illumina sequencer in order to reconstruct the original sequence.
Hybrid genome assembly combines long and short reads techniques to achieve the best results.
Long-read assembly (ONT, PacBio)
Assembly technique of merging long fragments of DNA to reconstruct the original genome.
Technique that allows to correct long reads with short reads structures to achieve better allignement in the genome assembly process or for analytical purposes.
