Title Tree shrew long-read genome assembly
Relevance Model organism
Data types Whole genome sequencing
Organisms Tupaia chinensis
Description We applied the long-read single-molecule sequencing and high-through chromosome conformation capture (Hi-C) technology to obtain high-quality chromosome-scale scaffolding of the Chinese tree shrew genome. The new reference genome (TS_2.0) solved the problems in the available tree shrew genomes and enables us to get accurate identification of the large and complex repeat regions, gene structures and specie-specific genomic structural variants.
