Assembly of chloroplast genomes with long- and short-read data: A comparison of approaches using Eucalyptus pauciflora as a test case

Wang, Weiwen; Schalamun, Miriam; Morales-Suarez, Alejandro; Kainer, David; Schwessinger, Benjamin; Lanfear, Robert


Background Chloroplasts are organelles that conduct photosynthesis in plant and algal cells. The information chloroplast genome contained is widely used in agriculture and studies of evolution and ecology. Correctly assembling chloroplast genomes can be challenging because the chloroplast genome contains a pair of long inverted repeats (10–30 kb). Typically, it is simply assumed that the gross structure of the chloroplast genome matches the most commonly observed structure of two single-copy...[Show more]
