    ..Velvet and EULER-SR were less accurate. For example, for Escherichia coli, the fraction of 10-kb stretches that were perfect was 99.8% (ALLPATHS2), 68.7% (Velvet), and 42.1% (EULER-SR)...

    Nature 447:167-77. 2007
    ..A substantial proportion of these eutherian-specific CNEs arose from sequence inserted by transposable elements, pointing to transposons as a major creative force in the evolution of mammalian gene regulation...

    Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02141, USA
    Genome Res 18:810-20. 2008
    ..We describe a general method for genome assembly that can be applied to all types of DNA sequence data, not only short read data, but also conventional sequence reads...
