Discovering genetic variation in populations using next generation sequencing and de novo assembly

Subtitle:
Linked de Bruijn Graphs for genome assembly and variant calling
Abstract:

The de Bruijn Graph is a simple and efficient data structure that is used in many areas of sequence analysis including genome assembly, sequencing error correction, sequencing read compression and variant discovery. The data structure has a single parameter k, is straightforward to implement and is tractable for large genomes with high sequencing depth. It also enables representation of multiple samples simultaneously to facilitate comparison. However, unlike the string graph, a de Bruijn ...
