Assembling a Reference-Quality Genome for Solemya velum (Bivalvia: Protobranchia)

Vanessa L. González, Ph.D. Smithsonian Institution

We generated a reference-quality genome Solemya velum (Bivalvia: Protobranchia) to allow us to test hypotheses about mollusc genome evolution and the symbiotic interactions in marine molluscs. 10X Genomics, PacBio Long-reads and Hi-C data was leveraged for molluscan genome assembly. Iterations and combinations of each data type have resulted in a 2.4 GB reference genome with a scaffold N50 of 200 MB and a BUSCO completeness score of 93.7%.

Directed Evolution of Genome Assemblies – and Why it is Important

Harris Lewin, Ph.D.UC Davis

Trace the directed evolution of 28 genome assemblies of the Narwhal, an iconic cetacean known at the “unicorn of the sea”. While understanding the evolution and amazing phenotypes of the Narwhal is the ultimate goal, the evolution of genome assemblies from short-read to long read-based assemblies with Dovetail scaffolding has been an interesting scientific journey in itself. Different sequencing approaches will be discussed in the light of genome assembly evolution, and their importance for understanding genome biology.

Linking Sequence Variation to Chromatin Dynamics through Genome Topology

Cory Padilla, Ph.D. Dovetail Genomics

Key discussion points:
– The role of genome conformation in gene regulation
– Why integrating conformation data with genotyping data can provide a more complete view of variants
– How to capture variants (SNVs and structural variants) with conformation in a single sequencing library
