AARHUS, Denmark--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today CLC bio released CLC Microbial Genome Finishing Module, an add-on module to CLC Genomics Workbench, which has been developed to help finish the assembly of small genomes. Senior Field Application Specialist, Dr. Marta Matvienko, states, "High-throughput sequencing technologies enable rapid full-genome sequencing, but short read lengths and repetitive sequences often complicate full genome assembly and result in fragmented assemblies. Genome Finishing Module helps produce high quality assemblies for small genomes such as bacterial or fungal species. This suite of tools reduces the extensive workload previously associated with genome finishing, by facilitating as many steps in the procedure as possible."
