This assembly was generated using 101 bp paired-end Illumina HiSeq2000 reads generated from two libraries: a 180 bp insert ‘fragment’ library and a 1.5 kb ‘jump’ library. Sequencing template for the fragment and jump libraries was derived from genomic DNA extracted from a single individual, which was preserved by freezing at -80C. Native genomic DNA was used for the fragment library and whole genome amplified DNA was used for the jump library.
