We present a genomic dataset sampled from the yeast Dekkera bruxellensis using three different technologies: Illumina short-read sequencing, PacBio long-read sequencing and optical mapping. The Illumina data consists of four different libraries of differing insert sizes (ie. paired-end fragments and mate-pair libraries), following the ALLPATHS recipe.
The purpose was to generate a draft genome assembly of high quality by combining these three different and somewhat complementary technologies. As a by-product of our work we present a pipeline for de novo assembly, NouGAT. It is a semi-automated pipeline for read pre-processing, de novo assembly with support of a wide range of assemblers and final assembly evaluation.
The version of the pipeline hosted here in GigaDB is the version as published (02-Nov-2015), for the most upto date version users are directed to the GitHub repository.
