Whole Genome Shotgun Sequencing – Early simulations showed that if repeats were considered black boxes, one could still cover 99.7% of the genome unambiguously. BAC 5’ BAC 3’ – Collect another 20X in clone coverage of 50Kbp end sequence pairs: pairs for Human. ~ 1.2million pairs for Human. – Collect 10x sequence in a 1-to-1 ratio of two types of read pairs: reads for Human. ~ 35million reads for Human. Short Long 2Kbp 10Kbp + single highly automated process + only three library constructions – assembly is much more difficult
Physical Mapping Clone-by-Clone Genome Sequencing Target – – 2 separate processes – clone libraries unstable, maps hard to complete – sequencing libraries must be made for every clone + assembly problem ‘easy’ and well understood Minimum Tiling Set (~33,000 BACs for human) for human) Shotgun Assembly

Consensus (15- 30Kbp) Reads Contig Assembly without pairs results in contigs whose order and orientation are not known. ? Pairs, especially groups of corroborating ones, link the contigs into scaffolds where the size of gaps is well characterized. 2-pair Mean & Std.Dev. is known Scaffold Pairs Give Order & Orientation

Detect repeats and so avoid being misled by them, leave for the last. Make 1st order use of mate-pairs: first to circumnavigate and later to fill in repeats. Make all the sure moves first tiered phases that get progressively more aggressive output a complete audit trail of the evidence for assembly. Assembler Design Philosophy
Repeat Rez I, II Assembly Pipeline (circa 2006) Overlapper Unitiger Scaffolder Trim & Screen Reads (typically 800bp) are quality-trimmed so that average error rate is.5% with 1-in-1000 having more than 2% error. Average trim length is bp, depending on the genome. (590bp for human in year 2000) Contaminant and vector sequence is removed Repeat screening makes run time and overlap graph size reasonable, e.g overlaps per Alu read must be avoided. Now we dynamically Now we dynamically limit repetitive overlaps in the overlap phase. gatekeeper program to vet inputs/assign ID’s Reads stored in compressed, random-access binary store.

Unitig Theorem (Myers, JCB ‘95) (1) Remove contained fragments (2) Remove transitively inferred edges (3) Collapse into unitigs (*) Restore t.i. edges between unitig ends. THM: Shortest Common Superstring of unitigs = Shortest Common Superstring of reads Caveat: SCS is not the right objective for assembly.
Revised Unitigger Algorithm Preceding algorithm is computationally expensive Current unitigger finds the “best” overlap on each end of each read—its “best buddy”. Unitigs are chains of mutually unique best buddies— adjacent reads are best buddies of each other and of no other read. This takes time and space linear in the number of reads. In rare cases results are different from graph reduction.

Consider graph without repeat-full edges and recompute unitigs D B Makes sure you get a read-length into each repeat induced gap (most Alu sized elements are resolved) A

Surrogates Stones containing more than 1 read are added to contigs as consensus sequence only, without underlying reads. Called “surrogates” Allows repeat unitigs to be put in multiple positions in the assembly, but leaves regions without underlying read coverage. We later attempt to resolve surrogates, by assigning reads from the original repeat unitig to the separate surrogate copies, based on mate pairs.
