Less memory, more assembly - Supernova™ 1.2

Shauna Clark

Part of the Chromium™ de novo Assembly Solution, the Supernova™ Assembler delivers diploid genome assemblies from just 1ng of high molecular weight DNA using a fast and simple workflow.  Now, Supernova 1.2 makes it even easier to unlock true diploid assembly.

NEW Supernova 1.2 features:

  • Barcode subsampling for assembling small haploid or diploid genomes (100Mb – 1.6Gb)
  • Reduce memory requirements
  • Reduced runtime on repeat regions
  • Available as open source - COMING SOON!

See the full release notes and download the software.
