Metagenomic Assembly: Overview, Challenges and Applications

Jay S Ghurye, Victoria Cepeda-Espinoza, Mihai Pop
2016 The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine  
Advances in sequencing technologies have led to the increased use of high throughput sequencing in characterizing the microbial communities associated with our bodies and our environment.  ...  In this survey, we focus on major algorithmic approaches for genome and metagenome assembly, and discuss the new challenges and opportunities afforded by this new field.  ...  Finally, e-RGA [21] performs de novo and reference guided assembly independently first and then merges two assemblies later using a novel data structure called merge graph to avoid mis-assemblies and  ...
