Error correcting optical mapping data
Optical Mapping is a unique system that is capable of producing high-resolution, high-throughput genomic map data that gives information about the structure of a genome (Schwartz et al., Science 1993). Recently it has been used for scaffolding contigs and assembly validation for large-scale sequencing projects — for example, the maize (Zhou et al., PLoS Genetics, 2009), goat (Dong et al., Nature Biotech. 2013), and amborella (Chamala et al., Science 2013) genomes. However, a major impediment in the use of this data is the variety and quantity of the errors in the raw optical mapping data, which ...
