Paper on GigAssembler describes how human genome draft was assembled

Thursday, August 16, 2001

The first publicly available assembly of the human genome was made possible in part by a computer program called GigAssembler, which was written by UCSC graduate student Jim Kent. A paper published online today in Genome Research, "Assembly of the working draft of the human genome with GigAssembler," describes the algorithm that the GigAssembler uses to make sense genomic data.
