Assembled Fosmid sequences used for assessment of Assemblathon 2 entries.

Bradnam, K, R; Fass, J, N; Hiatt, J; Howard, J, T; Jarvis, E, D; Kitzman, J, O; Korf, I, K; Shendure, J (2013): Assembled Fosmid sequences used for assessment of Assemblathon 2 entries. GigaScience Database. RIS BibTeX Text

Assemblathon 2 genome assemblies for bird and snake were assessed using high-confidence regions of assembled Fosmid sequences. These validated Fosmid regions (VFRs) were included as an additional file as part of the Assemblathon 2 manuscript. This file contains the complete assembled Fosmid sequences for both species (47 sequences for bird, 29 for snake).
