De Novo Sequencing

De novo sequencing refers to sequencing a novel genome for the first time and requires the specialized assembly of sequencing reads. De novo sequencing can sequence the genome of a species without any reference genome information, and uses bioinformatics analysis methods to splice, assemble, and obtain the genome sequence map of the species, so as to promote the subsequent research of the species.

The process of de novo genome sequencing involves sequencing of small DNA fragments, then assembling the reads into longer sequences, and finally sorting the contigs to obtain the complete genome sequence. With the advent of low-cost, rapid next-generation sequencing technology, researchers can gain whole genome data of organisms that were previously considered to be too low priority for sequencing.

Application of De Novo Sequencing

Compared with other sequencing methods, de novo sequencing has the superiority of generating accurate reference sequences even for complex or polyploid genomes, elucidating highly similar or repetitive regions, as well as identifying structural variations and complex rearrangements.

De novo sequencing can be used used to obtain genomic information of bacteria or fungi, to explore genetic structure and function, to study the evolutionary origin of microbial populations, and to develop potential applications of these abundant microbes in medicine, disease, agriculture, and the environment. Specifically, the application of de novo sequencing including virulence research, drug resistance mechanism, molecular maker, evolution relationship and so on.
