CLC Microbial Genome Finishing Module

Tools for high quality assemblies


Genome finishing

High-throughput sequencing technologies enable rapid full-genome sequencing of genomes. However, short read lengths and repetitive sequences often complicate full genome assembly and result in fragmented assemblies. The Genome Finishing Module has been developed to help finishing small genomes such as bacterial genomes in order to reduce the extensive work load previously associated with genome finishing and to facilitate as many steps in the procedure as possible.

The module is an add-on to CLC Genomics Workbench.
