ALLPATHS: de novo assembly of whole-genome shotgun microreads. Gene- boosted assembly of a novel bacterial genome from very short reads. We provide an initial, theoretical solution to the challenge of de novo assembly from whole-genome shotgun “microreads.” For 11 genomes of sizes up to 39 Mb, . An international, peer-reviewed genome sciences journal featuring outstanding original research that offers novel insights into the biology of all organisms.

To approach this limit, new paired-read assembly algorithms are needed.

In summary, the ALLPATHS assembly using actual Solexa read data but artificial read pairing is slightly worse than whole-genomw obtained with simulated data, but is nonetheless quite good. SuttonSteven J.

It is impossible to do better using unpaired reads unless one has reads longer than 6. Read id is called the canonical read associated to x. The right half of Table 2 reports the results that would be obtained if one could use only reads from a kb region containing the read pair. It reveals both what can be known from the data and what cannot be known. However, the approach will typically also yield other, incorrect paths.

The genomic positions of the fragments were chosen at random. Table 2 illustrates how the number of paths connecting a given read pair can vary, both across pairs and also as a function of the standard deviation SD in the size of the DNA fragment.

The middle horizontal edge represents a 6. Skip to search form Skip to main content. From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper. These read pairs having large numbers of closures pose a complex series of problems. Then we may merge the two pairs together, yielding a single pair.

Nonetheless, the results here suggest that high-quality assemblies should be achievable with microreads. While the answer for unpaired reads is not simple, it is precisely computable from the genome. Filtering of Solexa reads Reads were filtered based on their intrinsic quality by removing non-passing reads. Here, given sufficient paired-read links from the left to the right edge, the precise number of copies of the loop edge may be determined, and it may then be unrolled, thereby replacing all three edges by a single edge.


If the read under consideration can be extended by a read that has already led to solutions, the reads in the current search path are added to the solution graph, and the last read is linked to its previously encountered extending read, sharing the search results from that read on.

More could be allowed, but the process would take longer. Then we find all consistent placements for read pairs. Statistics for assemblies of 11 genomes. Indeed, if we always found all paths, we would expect assemblies to have ambiguities rather than errors, in all cases.

For each such simulated pair, we noted the start point of the first read and the end point of the second read on the reference, and searched the pool for two real reads in opposite orientations having the exact same start and end points.

The graph thus encodes exactly what can be known from the data: Genome-wide mapping of in vivo protein—DNA interactions. A Assembly of E. Accurate multiplex polony sequencing of an evolved bacterial genome. Selecting kicro Now with the unipaths and read pairs in hand, we are ready to localize.

Results for assemblies of simulated data To test the algorithm, we chose 10 finished reference genomes from bacteria and fungi ranging from 2 to 39 Mb and a Mb segment of the human genome Supplemental material Part a. As soon as an interval in the database is encountered that begins after the posited interval ends, work on the posited interval is complete, and it is a unipath interval, se all subsequent intervals in the database will not intersect the posited interval.

Accurate multiplex polony sequencing of an evolved bacterial genome. A given K -mer from G can occur in only one unipath, and every K -mer in a unipath is represented by one or more instances in G.

The process is iterative. At least for simulated reads modeled on real datathese approximate unipaths closely match the true genomic unipaths. Assemblies are presented in a graph form that retains intrinsic ambiguities such as those arising from polymorphism, thereby providing information that has been absent from previous genome assemblies. More specifically, we use the reads in the neighborhood to define local unipaths, in exactly the same way that approximate unipaths for the entire data set are defined.


Given any sequence s from S, microo as a K -mer path, this database allows rapid identification of all sequences in S that share a K -mer with s. We consider only changes that make all the K -mers in the read strong, for all K values.

Once complete, their outputs local assembly graphs are glued together formally Fig. Shitgun the alignments of Step 1 to map K -mers on an arbitrary read to K -mers on the canonical reads associated to those K -mers, then assign them numbers via Step whole-grnome, thereby causing all occurrences sgotgun a given K -mer to have the same number. This graph generally provides an imperfect representation of the genome, and can be improved.

All we have to do is take the first last K -mer number in a given unipath interval, look it up in the database, thereby determine its possible predecessors successorsand if there wholee-genome exactly one, join the given unipath interval to the one on its left right. We combined the reads from 14 lanes on assemvly flowcells: The procedure used to generate this table is in the Supplemental material Part c.

Genome-wide mapping of in vivo protein-DNA interactions.

Unipath graph of the 1. The value of K can be changed by adjusting the edge sequences. Next, we compute the closures of all the merged short-fragment pairs, using only the reads from these pairs. Shlyakhter1 Matthew K. We then allptahs simulated read pairs, as described in the text.
