On January 30th, 2018 we hosted our 7th 10x-pert Workshop: de novo Assembly with Linked-Reads and Supernova 2.0, featuring 10x R&D scientists David Jaffe and Nikka Keivanfar. David kicked-off the presentation with a look at the Supernova Assembler and assembly performance metrics for Supernova 2.0 across a range of species, including human, insect, plants and more. Nikka followed David and presented improvements to our high molecular weight (HMW) DNA sample preparation protocols and introduced a new protocol for DNA isolation from a single insect. Following the presentation, David and Nikka answered audience questions during an open Q&A session.
