Dm Cell Line Genomic Sequencing W2 alignments and assembly (Celniker project, Graveley subgroup)


Reads from genomic DNA libraries created from the D. melanogaster W2 cell line, were aligned to the D. melanogaster r5 genome using BWA. Tracks show read alignments and density. Based on the alignments, a consensus FASTA sequence for the cell-line genome was created with a guided assembly.
Total read count: 61042268
Mapped read count: 59925682
Alignment rate: 98%

General Description

Rather than doing a de novo assembly, we have done a guided assembly for D. melanogaster strains and tissue culture cell lines using the dm3 reference to build a new assembly in which we change the appropriate SNPs and insert or delete sequences as appropriate for indels. Our assembly, then, is full chromosome sequence (e.g., 2R, 2L, etc.) with the changes inserted.
