Professor Lachlan Coin presents a de novo assembly of the genome of Australia’s vulnerable plant species, Macadamia jansenii

Published on: 16 April 2020

In this webinar, Professor Lachlan Coin will talk about his recent study with the Genome Innovation Hub at The University of Queensland for de novo assembly of the genome of Australia’s vulnerable plant species, Macadamia jansenii. In this study several long read sequencing technologies, including MGI’s unique single-tube Long Fragment Read (stLFR), are compared for the same sample.
