Next-Generation Sequencing and Assembly of Plant Genomes

  • Basant K. Tiwary


Next-generation sequencing technology produces enormous volume of accurate and inexpensive sequence data in a short span of time. Three available common next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms for genome sequencing are discussed here. The genome assembly and scaffolding algorithms are described with special emphasis on de novo assembly of short-read sequences. The biological applications of next-generation sequencing in plant sciences are covered with examples from plant genomics. An account on future prospects of this technology in plant genome analysis is discussed.
